Quoting TantricLemons:" I saw that and honestly smurf her. Pretty much ALL surrogacy contracts have an abortion clause. So she ... [snip!] ... stress and gave the child a poor quality of life. I hope this means she will never be given another surrogacy contract again."
Quoting .Colleen.:" I would think there would be stipulations regarding this type of scenario in the contract. While the ... [snip!] ... While the counter offer does not set well with me at all, it is her body. Who is responsible for the child in this case?"There was, she was in breech of contract. She signed that contract knowing that it was an option and that she wouldn't follow through if it came down to it.
Quoting Mel & a girl named Pey:" Same exact thing I said else where! She shouldn't have signed the contract with the abortion section in there if she knew she was against abortion to begin with."
Quoting Amelia Margaret:" No one should ever be forced to abort but shame on her for electing to be a surrogate."She signed up for a hypothetical abortion when she signed the contract. That was part of the "job" she was getting paid for.
