The stranded babies of Kyiv and the women who give birth for money

Lockdown exposed the scale of the commercial baby business in Ukraine, and now women hired for their wombs are speaking outSome are crying in their cots; others are being cradled or bottle-fed by nannies. These newborns are not in the nursery of a maternity hospital, they are lined up side by side in two large reception rooms of the improbably named Hotel Venice on the outskirts of Kyiv, protected by outer walls and barbed wire. They are the children of foreign couples born to Ukrainian surrogat...

Trump just became the third president in U.S. history to be impeached. Now, the memes…

You’ve likely heard by now that yesterday the U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach Donald J. Trump by 229 to 197, making him just the third president in American history to be impeached. Now, it’s off to the Senate, where it will take at least 67 votes to remove Trump from office, which nobody is really expecting will happen.
