What happens when people become commodities

I hadn't heard about this story, but apparently it's been widely publicised. A baby was "commissioned" by a Japanese couple wanting a child but before she was born the couple divorced. That's a tragedy common enough. But now the child is not recognised in either country. What's going on their? Why is it so hard for societies to welcome people? I'm sure the child is loved by the nurse that cares for her.
