Offshoring Motherhood

There are no parameters to the offshoring industry. As written in the BloggingBaby the relatively inexpensive and regulation free environment in India could grow the in vitro fertilization business to 3 billion a year. As is the normal situation, a good portion of the cost inherited to someone interested in having this procedure is meeting the legal and medical requirements.

In the United States the procedure could easily cost $50,000 if everything goes smoothly and often breaks the $100,000 mark. In India you’re looking in the range of $1,100, for the bargain shopper, to $4,500 for the deluxe treatment. Not to mention the value received of having immunity from any future legal liability.
