Thanks to Body Pixel for the kind words:

Google Baby

Documentary Google Baby (2009) by film maker Zippi Brand Frank deals with birth outsourcing among three countries: Israel, USA and India. It involves business, technology (computers and human bodies) and a bunch of paradoxes…..

The prelude is based on Doron’s previous private experience. He and his boyfriend got a baby thanks to a American agency that offers the best egg-cells on the market, Egg Donation, Inc. Because Israeli laws don’t allow their women to sell their eggs and are not so elastic to gay couples willing to adopt a child, it was the only way they could make it….

Egg Donation, Inc provides the best selection of eggs and women, a selection that varies from great personality to natural blond or charming brunette. When the preferred genetic material is definitely selected, purchased on-line via credit card, multiple embryos packed in liquid nitrogen are ready for a trip to another continent, travelling forward to India to be placed in someone’s womb.

Director Zippi Brand Frank does not make any judgment on the topic, but somehow you can find yourself completely confused in this body, egg, sperm, embryo, womb and baby traffic.


One comment for “Google Baby”

  • Interesting post! And yes, you’re right. This egg donation stuff is really confusing. I need to watch this documentary.
