The Steps for Life platform in Mexico called for legislation against surrogate motherhood, known in Spanish as “rent a womb,” as well as any other form of exploiting women’s fertility.
As part of its campaign to oppose surrogate motherhood, the Steps for Life platform is painting outdoor murals with messages such as “Women are not for rent, much less are their children for sale.”
The purpose of these murals, the platform explained in a statement, is to “make visible this grave practice that is spreading in Mexico.”
To date, it has painted murals in the states of Coahuila, Michoacán, San Luis Potosí, and Jalisco, as well as in Mexico City.
Pilar Rebollo, director of Steps for Life, charged that surrogate motherhood “or any form of exploitation of female fertility violates women more than what has been done for centuries.”
According to research by the Faculty of Political and Social Sciences of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, in 2018, this industry generated profits of $6 billion worldwide. By 2025, it is estimated that the figure could rise to $27.5 billion.
