Ukraine: there is also the drama of 'surrogate' mothers

Ukraine is Europe's baby-making factory: thousands are born every year. Today, in order to save the 'product' and the investment, the rich commissioners demand that pregnant mothers leave the country on the brink of war, separating from their families and children. Further violence against these poor and exploited women

Ukraine is on the brink of war. The world is on tenterhooks, Europe could be facing a conflict at home, those who can leave the country but there are also those who do not want to.

Like Natalia, 29 years old, surrogate mother who called his lawyer the other day to find out if he could be forced by the 'intended parents', the commissioners of the child she is carrying, to go abroad.. Natalia, the name is fictional, she has a husband and children and would not want to be separated from them for any reason. and is convinced that nothing will happen. But intentional parents are terrified and they want her to move to Georgia until she gives birth. On the other hand, they have paid handsomely to have this child and now they don't want to take any risks. When people talk about the effects of the war they forget that it is Ukraine is also the capital of surrogacy in Europe and that this business, among many others, will be endangered by a Russian invasion.

In recent days, surrogacy agencies in the country have received many cancellations by those couples who had not yet started the process. Those who already have a pregnant surrogate demand guarantees. We all remember when in May 2020, at the height of the pandemic, the surrogacy agency Biotexcom released the video of the improvised nursery in Kiev's Venezia hotel where dozens of newborns waited for their intended parents who were locked down. (see hereand the shocking video here). Everyone was outraged then. The same could happen today.

Ucraina: c'è anche il dramma delle madri "surrogate"

The problem was raised by the British Sunday TimesIn the surrogacy sector, the crisis has also highlighted the profound differences and inequalities between poor Ukrainian women who bear children - and are usually paid between 12,000 and 18,000 euros - and wealthy biological parents abroad".

Sergeiy Antonov, a Ukrainian lawyer, told the Sunday paper that he had been contacted by at least two couples to find out if they could force the pregnant woman to go abroad: Surrogate mothers," she explained, "have their own children and cannot leave them and move to another country.  The contracts they signed, however, may provide for this. At least in the future. Surrogacy agencies are moving in this direction. 
It is estimated -but underestimated- that at least two thousand children are born in Ukraine every year on commission. Buyers are attracted by the relatively low prices and the laws that allow them to become the father and mother of the newborn child from the moment of conception.

Recently the European Parliament, which in a previous resolution had strongly condemned surrogacy, has toned down its positions limiting its "no" to commercial practice. In reality, it is well known that surrogacy is - with very few exceptions - a purely commercial practice, and that where the so-called solidarity gpa has been allowed, the effect has been to pave the way for business.

The 'milk' of men
The English National Health Service ensures that the milk produced by a male body -stimulated with ad hoc drug therapy- is as good for the newborn as that of its mother, who is wiped out. Minimising the risks to the child's health largely offset by the ideological and symbolic benefits. It is the transhuman, my beauties!
Men's 'milk' is a perfect example of what we call transhuman. Women's milk, on the other hand, is human, all too human, it is the perfect model of the enduring human, and therefore natural breastfeeding should be degraded, mocked, stigmatised as something to be ashamed of and kept hidden. In fact, it is even a useless and unethical act. On the contrary, promoting and magnifying male 'breastfeeding' shows plastically the way forward. According to the prestigious journal Pediatrics, organ of the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is 'risky' to define [...]

How to convince progressives to give up gender
Terrified of transactivists and worried about sounding 'right-wing', left-wingers support the transition of minors even in the absence of studies showing that 'affirmative therapy' works and promotes the well-being of gender non-conforming girls and boys. "But everyone has a right to evidence-based medicine," argue some liberals determined to "break the spell". And they start DIAG -Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender- to convince democrats in the US and around the world that continuing on this path is wrong and dangerous. For children and for the left. An article by Bernard Lane
A new movement of US Democrats wants to find out how to break the spell of gender ideology and bring the party back to the liberal values of science and reason. Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender (DIAG) launched a project yesterday on X Space (Twitter) to commission research on how to more effectively reach out to left-wing voters who believe that science is now in favour of 'gender-affirming' medicalisation of gender non-conforming youth. "The only way to end this [...]

New York Times: Strong doubts about hormones for children with gender dysphoria
The world's leading woke newspaper has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, starting with the indecent treatment of JK Rowling. Today the paper changes course and in a very long article criticises the 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers, hormones and surgery) for trans minors, giving a voice to some hitherto censored and ostracised detransitioners. Because by now even many Democratic voters have strong doubts. And there is a risk of losing many readers: "get woke, go broke".
For years, the New York Times has been the world's leading woke newspaper and has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, jubilating critical voices. The treatment of JK Rowling is exemplary. In 2022 a very violent subscription campaign invited people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture (see here) A misogynistic and aggressive gesture - the initiative turned out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threatened to cancel -. A few months ago The Daily published [...].

Men IntintA and other wonders
The health of 'Marco', a trans FtM who is five months pregnant with testosterone, and that of her baby are the least of the problems. What matters to the liberal press talking about an 'anthropological revolution' is whether 'Marco' is to be called mother or father. But only a woman can give birth even if at the registry office her name is male. In this nothing has changed since the dawn of time. In the meantime, the trans front is losing ground: in one year, the number of members of WPATH, the largest transgender health organisation, has fallen by 60 per cent.
La Repubblica online headlines with a triple somersault about the 'young man who got pregnant': pregnant is not dared even at the transphilic GEDI group. The story is that of 'Marco', a girl undergoing testosterone therapy to look more like a man: beard, graver voice -not to 'become male' because sex cannot be changed and every single cell will remain damned XX-. 'Marco' had retained his uterus and ovaries and following a hetero sexual relationship (a [...]

Child rapists: shock report in UK
In Great Britain, 18 rapes a day are committed by minors on their peers: in 2022 these cases numbered 15,000, almost always by very young males. A British police report shows how free access to violent pornography online is normalising criminal sexual behaviour in England and all other Western countries
For years, we have been reporting on the psychological and material damage produced on an entire generation by free access to violent online pornography, consumed by boys and girls from the age of 7 but also much earlier: gang rapes committed by minors are just the tip of the iceberg of this dramatic phenomenon, which has now been analysed and quantified by a study by the British police. On this topic you can find previous articles here, here, here and here. We were almost only [...]

New Hampshire: No more 'sex change' surgery on minors
The US state has passed a bill banning surgeons from performing operations on under-18 year olds such as the removal of ovaries and breasts for females and penises and testicles for males. The bill states that these operations violate the patient's 'informed consent' and points out that studies have not shown a decrease in the suicide risk of minors after the operations. On the contrary: the danger increases
New Hampshire is preparing to ban under-18s from undergoing sex-change operations. Last Thursday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a bill to this effect, also with the help of some Democratic members. House Bill 619 prohibits doctors from performing 'any genital gender reassignment surgery', i.e. the removal of the uterus, ovaries and breasts in the case of women; testicles and penis for men, to anyone in the [...]
