India and Thailand are common rental-womb venues, because it’s possible to buy pretty good obstetric care as well as the women. The eggs are generally bought from northern Europeans - must have that nice white skin.
This child is not THEIR baby. Just another fragment of THEIR imagination and delusion that being gay is not abnormal.
Birth control is all about babies as commodities
Evidently Portugal did not get the memo from Obama.
