Why Did It Take So Long To Uncover - Illegal Surrogate Baby Breeding Ring?
I am usually not one to jump to conclusions without hearing both sides of the story, but with the recent discovery of an illegal baby breeding ring in Thailand, I find myself asking: "Why had these operations gone so long undetected? Did the Thailand authorities know about these operations while choosing to turn a blind eye, or did they really not have a clue?
I find the latter argument hard to swallow. If you're hazy on the details, last week fourteen Vietnamese women, of which seven were pregnant, were rescued from an illegal surrogate baby breeding ring in Thailand.
Surrogacy is highly common in most parts of the Western world, but in Taiwan and other countries, it is illegal. Which is what led to these criminal masterminds setting up those abhorrent operations in Thailand, with offices in Bangkok, Phnom Penh in Cambodia and Vietnam, where surrogacy is legal, in order to exploit the desires of the infertile.
Thai authorities were able to free the women after a tip off by the Vietnamese embassy that received an email by the imprisoned women. It was then discovered that while some women volunteered their bodies for money, others were tricked into it, where some looked like they had been raped.
