Abstract

Many changes have taken place in recent years in the area of assisted reproduction. One of the more controversial is surrogate motherhood, which is used primarily when a woman either is infertile or, for other reasons, cannot or will not bear her own biological child. Her partner’s sperm is artificially inseminated in a “surrogate,” who agrees to surrender the child to the couple at birth. Such surrogates are normally paid.
