Ugh...one more step back in Canada. This broadcast titled "The Murky World of Reproductive Medicine" one woman who used the name "Secaley" made women in our situation look like criminals. She has 2 girls and 4 boys and is trying to have a blue eyed blond haired girl. But keeps having boys...she tried to give her 3rd boy up for adoption after 1. finding out it was a boy and 2.because it had down syndrome. But after holding him and seeing "how cute" he was she decided not to SELL him to the parents that were waiting for him. She tried for the designer baby once more but again a boy. She put this one up for adoption as well but there were not "any takers". She says she will try again until she gets her princess baby. I can't believe this was the image used for women in Canada.
Here is the link to watch online...
For a brief overview of Canada's current DE and GC laws, in 2004 the laws were changed to make compensation to Egg Donors and Surrogates illegal. A CDN egg donor and surrogate does have the right to claim expenses related to the egg donation and surrogacy. But not a penny more...and it must be supported by a receipt. Anyone who defies this law can be subject to a $500,000 fine and/or 10 years in prison. Pretty stiff penalty if caught.
