[edit] Information

Reporter Kiki King and director Ruhi Hamid travel to Mexico, which has become an international hotspot for the fast expanding, multi-billion-dollar child surrogacy industry. The global child surrogacy industry is estimated to be worth two billion US dollars a year. Prospective parents are attracted to Mexico because it's cheaper - a successful surrogacy costs around US$45,000, less than half the price in the United States. And it's become a favoured destination for prospective parents around the world after controversies and clampdowns in India and Thailand. However, in Mexico they discover a disturbing situation, which can put surrogate mothers at risk - not least because implantations can be carried out before legally binding contracts are signed, placing the ownership of the baby in question.
