Surrogacy in Mexico
Poor women exploited by US surrogacy agencies.
Another documentary about the dark side of surrogacy, this time in Mexico. Channel 4 journalist Kiki King interviews surrogate mothers and American surrogacy agencies. It’s not a rosy picture of loving surrogates and gushing parents. One of the surrogates even claimed that her agency did not give her enough to eat. Another found out after she became pregnant that her client and sperm donor was HIV positive. Another became pregnant without a contract. (For the full video, watch it on YouTube.)
