Thailand Deports 5 Pregnant Vietnamese Surrogate Mothers And 5 Babies

Five surrogate mothers, five babies deported

By The Nation

Published on May 31, 2011

Five pregnant Vietnamese surrogate mothers and five babies from other illegal surrogates were repatriated from Thailand yesterday.

They boarded a flight to Vietnam at 6.45am.

Social Development and Human Security Minister Issara Somchai said the babies were not entitled to Thai citizenship because their mothers had entered Thailand illegally.

"The surrogate mothers were paid Bt100,000 each," he said.

According to him, four suspects have been arrested for illegally procuring Vietnamese women to become surrogate mothers, but the mastermind behind the operation is still on the run.

"He's Taiwanese and his name is Lao Pan," Issara said.

With all the documents in the possession of the alleged mastermind, men who claim they had fathered the babies are unable to provide evidence and take custody of the children.

The Taiwanese human-trafficking gang was found to have lured 15 Vietnamese women into becoming surrogate mothers, of whom 10 were deported on May 13. Of the deported, six were not pregnant, while four had given birth to five babies, including a pair of twins.

"I will check on the repatriated victims as well," Issara said before boarding a flight to Vietnam yesterday morning.

He was scheduled to meet Vietnam's minister of public security and other relevant officials on controlling human trafficking. Issara said illegal surrogate mothers faced tougher punishment in Vietnam compared to Thailand.

Why bring in Vietnamese women ?

I am sure there are thousands of Thai women that would become surrogate mothers for a fraction of that price.

They were probably deported for working without a work permit in a job that is classified as restricted to Thai's. Get paid B100,000 for a year's work, housing allowance, lie around and do nothing for a year. Yes many Thai ladies want that job.

Doesn't the "repatriated" in the main article read a hell of a lot better than "deported" in the headline.

I tought if you where born in Thailand you are Thai citizen and get nationality regardless if the mothers entered the Kingdom illegally

And Issara said illegal surrogate mothers faced tougher punishment in Vietnam compared to Thailand.

The beautiful and human Thailand (Land of Smiles) when you come for a 2 week holiday and use at least 300 000 baht

This is an insult... You dont get babies by 'lie around and do nothing for a year'... 'Many Thai ladies do more for less'...:D ( This is meant as a compliment, by the way, no derogation intended)

I'm confused.

Using surrogate mothers is quite common these days of medical tourism. Thousands of Americans, Brits, German, ect. couples that cannot, or do not want to "carry" a child routinely go to India where clinics arrange for the couples in vitro fertilized egg to be placed within the womb of the surrogate mother who is paid to carry the child to term, and not infrequently to age one or two, whereupon the child is retrieved. This is common and legal in India, so is this illegal in Thailand? And who are the fathers? Are these children created from the egg/sperm of a couple who cannot bear a child? When this is done in India the child, though born in India is not considered an Indian citizen. I would think that here the egg/sperm parents would not consider their child, even if carried to term by a Vietnamese in Thailand, either Thai or Vietnamese.

There are lot's of "takers" in India, for it is one of the few ways to earn perhaps $5-15,000 to be used for a grand wedding.

Is it the surrogate carriage of children that is forbidden, or the illegality of the Vietnamese mothers "working" in Thailand without a permit?

It is the Human Trafficking which is illegal! The babies are not sold to foster parents for THB 100000. The traffickers probably cash at least 10 times that price!
