Surrogacy means that a woman agrees to become pregnant and give birth to a child for another person or couple. A surrogate mother is a woman who carries and gives birth to and bears a child for the intended parents. Intended parents are persons who will raise the child. The European Society for Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) does not indicate the sexuality of the intended parents. Religious attitudes to surrogacy differ. For example, the Catholic Church is against all forms of assisted conception. The English deer is flexible and does not condemn surrogate motherhood. In the Jewish religion, the child belongs to the father who gave the sperm and to the woman who gave birth, so surrogate motherhood is not prohibited. The Islamic religion says that pregnancy must be the result of a legal marriage and considers surrogacy unacceptable. The Buddhist religion takes family ties and moral considerations into account, although it does not prohibit surrogacy. Similarly, in the world, there are countries where surrogate motherhood is completely prohibited, and countries where it is possible only as altruistic, that is, when the surrogate mother does not receive financial compensation. And there are countries where surrogacy is completely legal and the surrogate mother has the right to receive financial compensation for participating in the program.
