Surrogacy: to be or not to be? - Jurfem

Surrogacy: to be or not to be?

In previous materials of the Jurfem Analytical Center, we analyzed approaches to the regulation of surrogacy in some countries, as well as the legal aspects of surrogacy in Ukraine. Today we will be acquainted with the main arguments and counterarguments on the expediency of the legislative permission of surrogacy. 

 Among the key proposals for the legal regulation of surrogacy in Ukraine are the following:

  • Prohibit surrogacy.
  • Allow surrogacy (the following variations are possible here: allow only altruistic surrogacy; allow both altruistic and commercial surrogacy).

We will analyze below the arguments and counter-arguments regarding the legislative permission to use the method of surrogacy.
