  • I agree with Mr. Switzer. It's not buying a person, it's buying a chance to have a successful pregnancy because you or your spouse can not do so otherwise. It happens in the US all the time (at much greater costs) and no one says a thing.

  • Hi, I'm Brian Switzer, one of the subjects of your slide show presentation. I noticed that you apparently took photos of my family straight from our blog. I do not recall you asking to utilize the photos. I really don't appreciate that and hope that you will remove this slideshow from the internet. And the slide about violating human rights because you are buying a person is incredibly incorrect. we bought a process/procedure with no guarantee that the pregnancy would take. Thank you.
