Can you say "commodity"?

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman's daughter, born to a "gestational carrier" is garnering lots of attention.

So, the quote of the day comes from a fertility specialist in Boston, Dr. Alan Penzias: "I have seen couples of modest means who save up their money to have one child," he says. "People save up for a house or a car. Some people say they want their money for something much more important."

One more articulation of the mentality of children as commodities.
