BENEFITING: International Women's Health Coalition
I decided to start this fundraiser after doing a research paper about transnational surrogacy especially in India. While information about this topic is widely accessible the jist is that women in less developed countries get paid far less to be surrogates for women in more developed countries. Their experience as surrogates is way different than what it is here too. For instance some women in India are bound to stay in surrogacy hostels for the length of their pregnancy. They're not even allowed to go home to see their own kids. It's not really a beautiful act of selfless giving at that point, in my opinion. But the point is that the reason why women in poorer countries tend to sign up for surrogacy more than we do here is because they have fewer options to support their family. So the IWHC exists in order help women gain access to resources which could keep them from having to make a choice they don't really want to have to make. And that sounds good to me. You in?
