This week on Oprah she had an show on people who decided to outsource wombs because they were not able to give birth to kids. I for one think that such a thing as this was inevitable given that we are becoming a global village, and that everybody now can just about outsource just about anything to any country.
So, what’s outsourcing anyway? My friend Webster defines it as; to procure (as some goods or services needed by a business or organization) under contract with an outside supplier
Before I say what I really think of this outsourcing womb business, I wanted to give you the reader, full disclosure:
I am in the process of having a website made through outsourcing that will enable people to pick out images of things in nature that look like letters, and put them together to form a word. Below is an example:
That said, I guess it would be hypocritical of me to say that outsourcing is a sin.
So my thought on outsourcing wombs is why not? Personally, I wouldn’t do it but then again I wouldn’t discourage someone from doing it. If push came to shove and I was left with no choice but to outsource a womb I would outsource the womb to someone I know, instead of Aishwarya who lives all the way in Mumbai simply coz I really don’t know whether Aishwarya is really taking care of herself and in turn taking care of my baby. And what if the baby is born with defects? Will Aishwarya be held responsible?
Generally women with kids in their wombs take good care of themselves and so I dedicate this songs to every woman who has ever had a bun in their oven and also to those who one day will. Enjoy!
