There are many arguments "for" and "against" surrogate motherhood. But also we can find a variety of different opinions about this "procedure".
Those who support surrogacy
For example, some argue that it is the most suitable option for women who can not bear a child for health reasons. Some also believe that surrogacy is a method of infertility treatment. Others stress that of the commercial arrangements shall not overlap with the non-commercial, and thus that surrogate motherhood should be a manifestation of altruism. Their position states that the exploitation of “deprived” women’s feelings and desires should not happen by commercial way.
Those who are against surrogacy
Surrogacy is more common in Canada and the United States, that’s why people who oppose it are often guided by western practices. Many of them also believe that this is a kind of women exploitation due to the commercial approach to the program. What enhances the effect is that those who pay in order to get the gift of life (a baby) is usually from a wealthy part of the population with higher education and other privileges of life, while a potential surrogate mother is young, not so well financially established and educated.
This kind of relationship, according to the opponents of surrogacy, may contribute to the exploitation of women, who for the desire to get financial rewards cannot adequately assess the potential risks and consequences involved - both physical and psychological.
Practive of “exporting” the surrogates from other countries just for the donation, after which they return to their original location, is also seem to be unsecure to some people.
Others raise a question about the commodification of babies. They argue that surrogacy programs convert the children into a "product" that one person sells and a third party (potential parents) buys. There are also arguments that if a child does not fullfil the requirements of potential parents they can refuse the deal.A commercial value to the reproductive process raise a lot of arguments. Opponents of surrogacy the surrogacy practice as a harmful process to individuals and society in general, as this practice would result in a lack of respect for the sanctity of life, they stress.
