Thousands of largely invisible American women have given birth to other people's babies..many of these women are military wives who have taken on surrogacy to supplement the family income, some while their husbands are serving overseas.

Thanks for the thought provoking article, Mark! There are so many unwanted
babies longing for a family, there are people who can't afford surrogacy,
but want their "own". I'm on the fence regarding this issue, but lean towards adopting!!!

The military, among its other crimes, does not pay families enough to live on. Those who mistakenly enlisted in the National Guard, believing they were only going to be "weekend warriors", are losing income as well as their health and their sanity. Their wives are driven to supplement the family income any way they can. Surrogacy appears to be one of the best and even safest ways for military wives to support their families.

Moral disapproval will not have any effect. It is a matter of supply and demand.
