Some Things Should Not Be Subject to Markets

Ellen Goodman writes about a disturbing trend toward the offshoring of the production of offspring. Actually, the trend toward going overseas for surrogate mothers is only one disturbing approach she describes as taken by some of those looking for "low cost" approaches to solving their infertility problems.

Those who hold to extreme libertarian views will see this as just a personal choice and have no problem with it. However, most of us should be repulsed by a trend that dehumanizes women by reducing them to nothing more than a means of production -- uh, reproduction.
