The coronavirus pandemic has hit the global business of surrogate birthing, leaving many infants and their new parents thousands of miles apart. Dozens of babies in rows of cots waiting for their parents to collect them at a hotel in Kiev, Ukraine.
They are babies from America, Italy, Spain, Britain, China, France, Germany, Bulgaria, Romania, Austria, Mexico and Portugal.
Because there is no prohibition by law, surrogacy is in a gray area in Ukraine. Even people in the industry may be accused of human trafficking. And Ukrainian officials don’t seem to want to halt this blooming business.
