According to the BBC, “Russia says it has no plans to attack Ukraine: and armed forces chief Valery Gerasimov even denounced reports of an impending invasion as a lie.”
But would this really jolly you up if you were a client of a surrogacy agency in Ukraine? The invaluable Substack blog HeyReprotech, edited by Alison Motluk, has informally surveyed American surrogacy agencies to see how the Ukrainian surrogacy industry is responding to a possible invasion and war.
Delivering Dreams International Surrogacy, a surrogacy agency based in New Jersey, held a Zoom meeting with commissioning parents for a frank discussion of possible problems. In her post Motluk describes some of the dangers – apart from getting shot or bombed – faced by the agencies, the surrogate mothers, the intending parents – and the babies.
