In brief: Because they can

It probably is not that common, it just grabs more headlines.
#1 they can afford it. This is an expensive process and the average american can't afford it. I'm sure some women are afraid of body changes, and think they can hire another woman to suffer the potential complications of pregnancy and delivery. It's helpful for some people, but imho natural is best.
