    In the last five years,would-be parents from as far as Istanbul and Uruguay have turned to healthy young mothers from Illinois to carry their children.

    The babies are born U.S. citizens, surrogacy agency officials say, but that's not a primary motivation for the parents, who typically come from European and Latin American countries where surrogacy is illegal or unavailable. The parents have exhausted other options and are willing to pay about $50,000 to $100,000 — part of which goes to the surrogate — to have biological children.

    Anything to get that US citizenship. Isn't this child abuse?
