Wealthy Chinese Seek U.S. Surrogates for Designer Babies


Wealthy Chinese are hiring American women to serve as surrogates for their children, creating a small but growing business in $120,000 "designerv" American babies for China's elite.

Surrogacy agencies in China and the United States are catering to wealthy Chinese who want a baby outside the country's restrictive family planning policies, who are unable to conceive themselves, or who are seeking U.S. citizenship for their children. Imigration as a family is another draw - U.S. citizens may apply for Green Cards for their parents when they turn 21.
