Who says IVF is not the commodification of babies?

This was advertized on my Sitemeter:

Oh and check out the URL:


They're selling babies, in effect. Oh sure, the babies aren't made, yet. But that's what it amounts to. This campaign happens to be targeted to lesbians. If you don't get a baby, you get a refund, guaranteed!

That just looks so sleazy. Practically child trafficking.You'd think the marketing people would be a little more sensitive about the issue. But that just speaks to the zeitgeist.

Ads for surrogate motherhood are not far behind.
