When natural child birth is not an option for women due to fertility or health problems, they require alternative methods like surrogate parenting. Surrogate parenting is a method not as widely known about as adoption or infertility treatments. A woman will bear a child for another woman who is infertile for a fee. There have been many questions raised regarding surrogacy’s moral and legal standing. This thesis examines the reasons why surrogate parenting in society should not be banned, but legalized.
