May I ask why? It is in fact one of the policy reasons behind the law of surrogacy in the UK and the reason why we do not (generally) sanction surrogacy arrangments involving payment beyond medical expenses.
Of course you may ask and of course I will answer.
Elton John and David Furnish are not running away to a third world country (your words btw) and exploiting someone.
I'm 100% certain that they have a legally binding business contract with someone and I just cannot compare that to someone selling a kidney for money to feed their children.
Its a nonsensical argument to say that my children still had me when their father died because, as I said earlier, tomorrow isn't promised to anyone..............least of all me.
My cousin and his wife were both killed in a carcrash and two teenagers were left without parents so age really doesn't come into it.
