Argentina a new destination for fertility tourists

Liberal legislation has opened the door for a global market.

Argentina, the home of Pope Francis, has become a surprising destination for fertility tourism. Since 2013, the government has subsidised IVF for everyone, including gays and single women. In the United States, a single cycle of IVF can cost as much as US$15-30,000; in Argentina, $4-7,000. People seeking donor eggs and cheap IVF are coming from as far away as the US and Australia, as well as other South American countries.
