Days after Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas make announcement, writer Taslima Nasreen shares offensive comment on Surrogacy

Calls them ‘Readymade babies’.

Recently, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas surprised the Internet and fans around the world, with their announcement that they have had a child through surrogacy. The gender of the child was later revealed to be female. Fans and many from the film fraternity poured their love and congratulations for the couple, from everywhere around the world.

Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen, had a different idea and opinion on this announcement, and made a comment about the same. The writer took to Twitter and said, “How do those mothers feel when they get their readymade babies through surrogacy? Do they have the same feelings for the babies like the mothers who give birth to the babies?” She also had another tweet which said that surrogacy is possible only because of the availability of poor women. “Surrogacy is possible because there are poor women. Rich people always want the existence of poverty in the society for their own interests. If you badly need to raise a child, adopt a homeless one. Children must inherit your traits—it is just a selfish narcissistic ego,” it said.

Netizens and many fans on the Internet criticised the writer’s words and said that opting for surrogacy is an individual’s choice, and they should not be judged for it. Some also said that many opt for surrogacy because of health issues. Although the writer has mentioned neither Priyanka Chopra nor Nick Jonas, the tweet came immediately after the couple made their announcement about their child.

Meanwhile, Priyanka and Nick have been married for 3 years now. The couple tied their knot in 2018, just a few months after they started dating. They have been the cutest couple of the Internet, making fans go ‘awww’ with admiration with their #couplegoals photo. The couple did not reveal the gender of their child, but reports say that they have had a 12 weeks premature girl baby.
