Feminists against Wombs for Rent (Femmva — Feministas Mexicanas contra Vientres de Alquiler) Joins StopSurrogacyNow

Español

Femmva is a group of Mexican feminists opposed to all forms of surrogacy and the reproductive exploitation of women. The name, Femmva, includes the term “wombs for rent” not because we reduce women to wombs, of course (it is clients and surrogacy agencies who reduce women to their reproductive functions), but because it is important to name the problem in all its harshness, and surrogacy is an aseptic term that obscures what is really going on.

Our main mission is to emphasize how unfeminist it is to defend this practice, to oppose its regulation in our country, to inform public opinion on the subject, and to have an impact on public policy in Mexico.

We are excited to join the international campaign, StopSurrogacyNow, and to work together to abolish this practice in Mexico and around the world.
