From a moral point of view, is surrogacy rather accepted when carried out altruistically instead of receiving financial compensation?

Many people consider surrogacy morally acceptable when it is carried out in a supportive and totally altruistic manner because they understand that this prevents the exploitation of women and is truly a free decision about the use of their bodies.

On the other hand, there are those who consider that not giving compensation to the surrogate is not fair to her, since it is acceptable for her to receive a reward for the help that she herself offers to the intended parents.

Therefore, what is more or less acceptable is something that each of us must determine from the point of view of our own ethics.
