I'm interested to hear your opinions on this article dealing with so-called 'birth tourism' here in the United States (FL, more specifically).

Perhaps one of the most famous "birth tourism" events was Roman Abramovich with M/Y Eclipse who spent two months in New York while his pregnant wife gave birth. They are some questions his wife at the time already had American citizenship so perhaps it was just because maternity care is better in America.

Ah yes, I remember hearing about that birth when the story broke. Here’s an article that seems to explain the situation pretty well. What an incredible yacht!
