There are a lot of contests with prizes that we disagree with, like the McDonald’s Monopoly pieces that only award foods that don’t come with additional game pieces. The “win a baby” contest in Britain is not one of those games.
Winners of “To Hatch” will receive “25,000 pounds’ ($40,175) worth of tailor-made treatments at one of the UK’s top five fertility clinics.” And if that doesn’t work, winners can also receive “reproductive surgery, donor eggs and sperm or a surrogate birth.”
Critics, however, claim that the contest is “inappropriate and demeaning to human reproduction.” To which we reply, oh yeah? Have you ever even seen sex?
