Over 500 newborn infants ordered by wealthy Westerners through surrogate agencies have been left without their parents in Ukraine due to the coronavirus crisis, with evidence including a shocking video of dozens of babies at the BioTexCom clinic in Kiev who are crying out for a parent that never came.
The BioTexCom clinic advertises itself as a Human Reproduction Center. In its catalog, prospective parents may find “attractive” offers on sale with pictures of smiling babies attached to them. For many, the price of the children is one of the most enticing features. Each one costs only €9,900.
There are even concerns that the huge rise in “inventory” may mean that these surrogacy companies may soon offer a sale to whoever can take the children off their hands.
Video recordings from BioTexCom’s Venecia hotel in Kiev are shocking – 46 beds with crying infants. These children are all the unclaimed product from BioTexCom — surrogate children ordered from poor Ukrainian women by rich Westerners through a surrogacy agency.
The closure of borders due to the pandemic has led to the buyers not showing up to pick up their infants, raising concerns over a human disaster that could unfold for each child.
In Europe, Ukraine is the leading country for surrogates. A “womb for hire” in Ukraine costs much less than in other countries, and the buyer has a guarantee that the child will be white.
This is an option that many gay couples utilize, allowing them to order and adopt children from such agencies.
It is estimated that more than 500 babies are waiting to be picked up ever since the borders were closed due to coronavirus, but the true number is hard to know due to the nature of the business.
