Surrogacy in the UK

Over the past ten years, the number of parents who gave birth to a child from a surrogate mother has increased almost fourfold. Surrogacy is when a woman carries a pregnancy and gives birth to a child for another person or couple. It is usually used by those who cannot get pregnant or give birth on their own due to health conditions, single men and same-sex couples. Looking at the prevalence of surrogacy, experts say the 1985 law is outdated and makes surrogate mothers and intended fathers vulnerable. The government recognizes that the law on surrogate motherhood needs changes and wants to revise it. An idea is currently being considered, according to which legal parentage would begin from the moment of birth. A spokesperson for the Department of Health says that surrogacy is an important choice for families and that legislation will continue to be reformed. The Law Commission will publish a new draft law before the end of the year.
