Birthing a Designer Baby
There’s a new fad in Chinese culture… And it’s only for the uber rich. Wealthy Chinese couples are paying Americans to birth their child for ‘designer babies’.
Wealthy Chinese are hiring American women to serve as surrogates for their children, creating a small but growing business in $120,000 'designer' American babies for China's elite. -Daily Mail
The families have lots of options too! You can do IVF, or you can choose who you would like to be the egg donor. Apparently, tall, ivy-league educated blondes are the best bet to pro-create with for beautifully smart ‘American’ children...So says one popular agency that helps pair Chinese couples with American women for the perfect combo.
Apparently, it is much cheaper to hire a surrogate or get pregnant yourself and hop a flight to the states and birth your child in America, than it is to go through the process of becoming an American Citizen the legal way... At least that's what the Daily Mail reports:
A growing number of pregnant Chinese women travel to America to obtain U.S. citizenship for their children by delivering there, often staying in special homes designed to cater to their needs.
While the numbers are unclear, giving birth in America is now so commonplace that it was the subject of a hit romantic comedy movie, 'Finding Mr Right', released in China in March.
At least one Chinese agent promotes surrogacy as a cheaper alternative to America's EB-5 visa, which requires a minimum investment in a job creating business of $500,000.
While the basic surrogacy package Chinese agencies offer costs between $120,000 and $200,000, 'if you add in plane tickets and other expenses, for only $300,000, you get two children and the entire family can emigrate to the U.S.,' said a Shanghai-based agent.
Wow... That's all I have... WOW!
