The social problem that every society must solve is essentially about protecting children, the most vulnerable. The desire of adults to have a biological connection to a child should not come at the expense of the rights of a child to a biological connection to their parents.
The conservative conclusion is that surrogacy should be strongly discouraged.
A PUBLIC POLICY COMPROMISE
Traditional surrogacy is not compatible with children’s rights however a possible compromise is the legality of a close family member being an altruistic gestational surrogate.
