William Saletan, national correspondent for Slate, has just penned a provocative online article that can be found here. As a result of his article, my inbox has been flooded by concerned people around the country offering money and other assistance in order prevent surrogates from proceeding with abortions.
I have emailed Mr. Saletan and advised him that there are no Gestational Carriers, to my knowledge, who are contemplating an abortion. While his article raises some very interesting issues, his concern is theoretical and not based on any factual circumstance. To the contrary, these remarkable women remain committed to their Intended Parents with full knowledge that all the funds earmarked to reimburse them for their expenses, lost wages and medical costs have been stolen. While the tragedy of the SurroGenesis scandal continues to unfold, the character and integrity of the women serving as surrogates for the victim of this fraud remains unblemished. At the end of the day, these exceptional women who serve as surrogates are not doing so for any monetary reward. Rather, they are doing it to help another couple realize their dream of starting a family.
