It was the first time a woman has acted as a surrogate mother for her daughter in Japan, local media reported.
The case is set to stir debate in Japan where surrogate births are opposed by the government and a key medical group.
Japan’s justice ministry also views the woman who gives birth as a child’s mother – not the biological mother.
I hope they started a therapy fund for that baby as soon as it was born because it’s got a long line of psychological issues ahead. Grandmother’s the mother. Mother’s the mother. Technically, this makes the baby its own mother. And the mother’s its sister.
Ain’t this a mutha?
