Surrogacy Compensation and Why It is Important to Women, Families & the Children

Compensating a woman for carrying your baby is seen by some as both exploitative and harmful to all the parties involved in the process. In fact, many countries ban it outright, even if the Surrogate consents. Other countries allow it, but ban payments to her of any kind.
Only a few places provide Intended Parents with legal standing before the birth of their child, including several states in the US, even if the child is genetically theirs. In fact, in many places the surrogate can change her mind and keep the baby. Several developing countries popular with foreigners in need of a surrogate have started to turn them away, such as India and Thailand.

We found a great article in the Economist that delved into the issues surrounding surrogacy. According to the Economist,

Getting surrogacy right matters more than ever, since demand is rising. That is partly because fewer children are available for adoption, and partly because ideas about what constitutes a family have become more liberal. Surrogates used to be sought out only by heterosexual couples, and only when the woman had a medical problem that meant she could not carry a baby. But the spread of gay marriage has been followed by a rise in male couples turning to surrogates to complete their newly recognized families. And just as more women are becoming single parents with the help of sperm donation, more men are seeking to do so through surrogates.

And, as the article states, laws should let the surrogate be paid. Women who become surrogates generally take great satisfaction in helping someone become a parent. As we know, many jobs offer “rewards beyond money, and no one suggests they should therefore be done for nothing.” Certainly,
