A mom was walking along with her son when he saw two brothers walking by. He asked her when he would get a brother too. That got her thinking.
She had struggled to have children through IVF and has one embryo left — a girl. But she needs a boy. So, the 37-year old actress took to the Internet to trade her girl embryo for a boy.
“I’m doing this for my son,” she told The NY Post. “My husband grew up with sisters and wants a boy too. This is the way we want to complete our family.”
This couple are trading away her own flesh and blood.
The actress wrote on a forum: “Hello, we have been trying to give my child a sibling for three years . . . we want to complete our family with a son. We have a great quality female embryo. Would you like to consider a trade?”
She posted the plea to a number of Facebook support groups for IVF couples — and the outrage was immediate. People complained to forum moderators and her post was removed from one group’s page.
However, the would-be embryo trader was contacted by a forty-something California woman interested in a potential swap.
“She already has a toddler, and she has two male embryos left over,” said the actress. “Her husband . . . has six sons from another marriage and then they have a boy together.
It will work out if the husband of the California woman gives the go-ahead.
The embryo trade is unregulated — no ethics involved.
In Ontario, a judge decreed the value of a human embryo: “Justice Del Frate…decided each embryo was worth US$2,875.” It’s a sort of slave trade.
At least the embryos have value. Abortion lovers place no value on an unborn baby to the moment of birth.
Leftists must love this.
