              Broken Bonds: Surrogate Mothers Speak Out

              Broken Bonds: Surrogate Mothers Speak Out (Trade Paperback / Paperback, None ed.)

              Celebrity couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West and their sweet new baby Chicago. Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black and their cute little baby Robert. And thousands of other couples and single people around the world who obtain babies through surrogacy arrangements. The general pub...lic is compassionate to their plight and supportive of their 'right' to a baby. But who are the faceless, nameless women who nurture and give birth to these babies? These women who are left with empty arms and leaking breasts after delivery? Surrogacy-dealing companies call them 'special angels' who 'make miracles possible', giving 'an extraordinary gift'. IVF clinics call them 'gestational surrogates'. The intended parents have promised them healthcare, full reimbursement, and ongoing contact with the baby. What could possibly go wrong? Everything. Because surrogacy violates the human rights of the women whose bodies are used, and the children who are born. Because it is a fundamentally flawed and misogynist concept to imagine that women are interchangeable. And it is wishful thinking that watertight legal contracts and counselling can fix this. In this book, strong and courageous women from the USA, the UK, Canada, Australia, India, Austria and Russia share their true stories of becoming 'surrogate' mothers out of kindness and compassion (or need for money), only to be deceived, neglected, abused, harassed, or abandoned by 'baby buyers', clinics, and lawyers. Their stories are tragic, shocking, and revelatory of a profit-driven industry that preys on desperation and women's compassion. It becomes clear that it is not the occasional dysfunctional relationship or unreasonable surrogate causing problems in the surrogacy industry. Rather, it is the very nature of surrogacy as well as the surrogacy industry to use and abuse and discard. This book throws down a challenge to Big Fertility and its minions: women are not ovens or suitcases, babies are not products. Love is not to be bought.

              Surrogacy: A Human Rights Violation

              Surrogacy is heavily promoted by the stagnating IVF industry which seeks new markets for women over 40, and gay men who believe they have a 'right' to their own children and 'family foundation'. Pro-surrogacy groups in rich countries such as Australia and Western Europe lobby for... the shift to commercial surrogacy. Their capitalist neo-liberal argument is that a well-regulated fertility industry would avoid the exploitative practices of poor countries. In Surrogacy: A Human Rights Violation Renate Klein details her objections to surrogacy by examining the short- and long-term harms done to the so-called surrogate mothers, egg providers and the female partner in a heterosexual commissioning couple. The author also looks at the rights of children and compares surrogacy to (forced) adoption practices. She concludes that surrogacy, whether so-called altruistic or commercial, can never be ethical and outlines forms of resistance to Stop Surrogacy Now.

              Based on studies presented at the 6th Interdisciplinary Conference on Conflict, Gender, and Violence in Vienna, this volume contributes to the field of interdisciplinary gender research and provides useful information for those working on sexual harassment and other issues. The b...road-based collaboration of contributors reflects an equally wide range of theoretical underpinnings and methodological choices with a three-fold goal: first, to provide unique opportunities to network across disciplines and redirect established ways of thinking; second, to examine the added value of work generated within European cultural contexts and disseminate it to an international audience; and finally, to stimulate innovative thinking and serve as a springboard for joint creative projects that benefit from cross-national or interdisciplinary research. Sixteen scholars present the latest research on gender based abuse, its interpersonal, social and cultural dimensions, and promising intervention and prevention strategies in Conflict, Gender, Violence. Essays include discussions of: The Austrian Protection from Violence Act : Women's Politics in Austria : Recent Legal Changes in Romania to Protect Women Against Domestic Violence : Women Victims of Domestic Violence: Consequences for Their Health and the Role of the Health System : Violence Against Women/Violence Against Men: Comparisons, Differences, Controversies ; Childcare, Violence, and Fathering: Are Violent Fathers who Look After Their Children Likely to Be Less Abusive : and other relevant issues.
