By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 03/22/2017

If surrogacy is well regulated and implemented respecting the rights of the parties and the best interests of the child, moral problems are reduced. However, when it does not respond to a guaranteeing and respectful legislation, situations such as these may occur:

  • Exploitation of women
  • Cosification or instrumentalization of the female body and the future baby
  • Psychological problems in the surrogate due to the delivery of the baby
  • Serious legal consequences of breach of surrogacy contract
  • Injury or affront to human dignity
