Reproductive Tourism in the United States : Creating Family in the Mother Country Hardback
Part of the Routledge Advances in Sociology series
This book examines the United States as a destination for international consumers of assisted fertility services, including egg donation, surrogacy, and sex selection.
Based on interviews conducted with fertility industry insiders who market their services to an international clientele in three of the largest American hubs of the global fertility marketplace - New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco - and focusing on the providers rather than the consumers of assisted fertility services, the book shines a light on how professional ethics and norms, in addition to personal moralities, shape the practice of reproductive tourism.
