Shocking “Google Baby” shows how babies are manufactured according to custom specifications. Qualified genes are canned in Israel and the United States, and the embryos are flown to India to be placed into rented wombs. A major part is played by doctor Nayna Patel, who runs a rent-a-womb clinic in Gujarati, India, home of the surrogate mothers. Like any business nowadays, commercial baby production is advertised over the internet to anyone interested. But when forced to hand over one’s newborn, people are reminded that our biological, primary emotions cannot be outsourced.
