    update:



    Surrogate mother, 48, who was paid $33k for triplets files for custody after the father demanded that she abort one of the babies 'because he couldn't afford to care for it'

    Melissa Cook, 48, agreed to carry children for Georgia man named as CM
    During pregnancy he tried to get her to abort one of three babies because he argued he could not afford to care for triplets
    As Cook refused she says he threatened to bankrupt her with medical bills
    She gave birth to triplets in February before they went to live with father
    He is thought to be a deaf postal worker, 50, who lives with his parents
    Now she is suing for custody saying they are not being properly cared for


    According to Cook, CM became 'scared' and admitted through his lawyer that he did not have the financial means to raise triplets, before demanding that she abort all three babies despite them being healthy.

    After arguments back and forth, Cook says CM's lawyer eventually demanded that she use selective abortion to get rid of just one of the babies, despite the substantial risk of killing the other two.
    ...
    Cook claims CM also said he would put one of the babies up for adoption because he could not afford it, and that when she offered to take the child, he said he would rather a stranger had it.

    When the babies were eventually born on February 22, after 30 weeks of pregnancy, Cook says they were taken away from her in the delivery room because CM did not want her to see them.

    To be honest if in Surrogacy, the contract needs to be drawn up and agreed to by both parties before the babies are conceived (this is not a pro or against abortion) This way if you have more than x babies mom can decide how to handle the pregnancy herself which should be in the contract as well. AKA Adopting parents pay for medical bills relating to # of babies they are adopting, and mom handles the rest through pregnancy medicaid or insurance.
