OTTAWA, May 31 ( – Another rotten fruit of in vitro fertilization has made the press with reports on the growing practice of selling surrogate motherhood. Unethical lawyers are charging thousands to draw up non-legal contracts between couples desperate for children and young women willing to bear children for others and sell them.  With no law in Canada prohibiting the practice it appears business is booming. Today’s Globe and Mail interviews Toronto lawyer Sherry Levitan, who proudly admits to drawing up such contracts for $5,000 each. The paper reports that women agree to carry and bear children for $10,000 to $20,000.
