Babies stuck in the Ukraine

Babies stuck in the Ukraine

The video by Ukraine’s largest surrogacy agency Biotexcomm of so many babies stuck in a nursery, unable to be taken back by their parents to their home countries is shocking. It occurred because Ukraine remains in lockdown. It seems that any loosening of the international borders in the Ukraine will at best be later this month. In the meantime, parents (and, more importantly, the babies) have to wait.

The video regrettably demonstrates the obvious. When choosing a country for surrogacy, choose a country where the rule of law is paramount- and laws that can arbitrarily close borders to the parents of children are not present.

By contrast, intended parents who have undertaken surrogacy in the US and Canada have been able to get there and get home with their children, no matter how many more difficulties there have been now with the pandemic.
