Reproductive technology is 'absolutely' the commercialization of the female body, says expert

Medical professional warns of risk in surrogate and donor pregnancies
The B.C. Catholic has a story from Catholic News Agency about a medical expert and filmmaker who says surrogate pregnancies are simply "the buying and selling of children:"
Artificial reproductive technology is “absolutely” the commercialization of the female body and especially harmful to children, a medical expert and documentary filmmaker says. 
“I am bold enough to go on record to say it's buying and selling children,” Jennifer Lahl, founder and president of Centre for Bioethics Culture, told CNA Sept. 18. 
Lahl said that although the argument could be made that surrogate parents or egg and sperm donors are being paid for their “time and effort” and not the children they help produce, ultimately “there's money changing hands and there's children being passed around.”
