Ethical and Legal Issues with Surrogacy

The term surrogate mother or surrogacy is not new today. This has become a very popular trend among many people in the world today. In addition to being the only way that gay couples can bear children, it is also the only choice for barren women to bear children.

Surrogacy is a concept that has been in existence for many decades now. However, the years have not made it any easier because there are still very many issues that may arise due to surrogacy. The most common and complex issues that are raised by surrogacy are ethical and legal.

Here are some of the ethical and legal issues with surrogacy today:

  • What surrogacy arrangements are considered legal? Surrogacy is a concept that has been out there or a long time but there are still controversies surrounding the whole concept. There are counties where surrogacy is completely illegal. In some countries, only commercial surrogacy is illegal and in some only altruistic surrogacy is illegal.
  • In places that surrogacy is not considered illegal, should the law impose criteria for eligibility of the surrogate, their spouse and even the parents of the baby? There is a question whether the authorities should or should not screen the involved parties for their criminal records and health records. There is also the question of the right age where the surrogate mother can have children.
  • Are there any protective measures in place to offer security to the surrogate mother in the case that she wants to change her mind? A better surrogacy agency California should be considered. There is a question whether the law is enforceable or not to allow the mother to keep the baby when she is reluctant to hand over the baby during any of the stages of the pregnancy.
  • Are there any protective measures in place to cover the children that were born of surrogate mothers? This may come in handy when the commissioning parents back out of the agreement. There is a question on the amount of information that the resulting children are entitled to receive on the whole process and even their commissioning parents.
  • Are there any protective measures for surrogate mothers during the pregnancy and delivery? Are there any laws in place that protect the surrogate mothers from forced and coerced caesarian sections to reduce the size of the fetus? Are there laws in place to protect the surrogates from forced abortions due to abnormalities in the development of the fetuses?
  • Is there any provision in the law for the children to have any information about their surrogate mothers? Is there a limit on the amount of knowledge that the children should know about their surrogate mothers? Is there also any provision in the law that allows he mother to have access to any information about the child?
  • Should the child born of the surrogate mother have access to information on the other children born of the same surrogate mother if there are any?
  • What is the right process to recruit women into the surrogacy program? Is it right and legal to advertise the jobs commercially and what are the methods of recruitment that should not be allowed?

The concept of surrogacy has been widely accepted by many people in the world today. However, as demonstrated above, surrogacy still continues to raise many issues both morally and legally.

 

Every day…

 
 

Ovo je slikano pre neki dan, i ovo je jedan look u kojem se osećem prijatno. Jedna kombinacija za svaki dan (škola, fakultet, posao…). nije ništa prenapadno a možete lepo i sređeno da izgledate.

Kada je u pitanju ovaj Pull & Bear džemper volim da ispod njega nosim ovu tanku H&M tuniku (letnju). Kupila sam je prošlo leto ali ona tako ide uz sve pogotovo sad kad se pojavila ta slojevitost u odevanju. Preko svega nosim Zara prsluk, nežno roze boje, definitnivno ide uz sve baš zbog svoje nežne boje. Dole nosim takođe Zaru, kožne pantalone za kojima  je poludeo ceo svet ali definitnivno ne izlazim iz njih ove zime jer su najbolje. Bile su u prodaji i bordo i jako mi je žao što ih nisam kupila u Berlinu jer sam mislila da ih ima i ovde…ali na kraju ništa.

Patike su isto Zarine, poseduju ih mnoge svetske blogerke. Jednostavno su divne, udobne a ako volite da nosite jednobojne stvari-ovo je prava stvar kako bi razbili tu monotnoiju. Ako možete da primetite one nisu cele kožne imaju taj leopard deo koji je kao od sitnih dlačica, gde one imitiraju  taj print. Ja sam se jednostavno oduševila njima. Za razliku od mog svakodnevnog aksesoara Michael Kors, ovog puta nosim Guess ogrlicu koju sam dobila nedavno za Vday, a naočare su u poslednje vreme, nezaobilazne Celine.

Business day

Pre svega, ovo je mesto na kojem počinjem dan. Upravo u ovaj park (Futoški park) odlazim čim otvorim oči, tačnije na trčanje. Obožavam ga jer pored toga što udahnete svežeg jutarnjeg vazduha možete da sretnete male preslatke životinje-veverice 🙂

Posle vežbe i treninga ovo je moja preporuka za jedan poslovni dan. Sve je u skladu a s druge strane izgledaćete veselo, baš uz ovo godišnje doba. Upravo ovako ja vidim jednu mladu poslovnu ženu. Nosim sako Love Moschino koji je već koju godinu moj verni pratioc u hladnim letnjim noćima, jedne vintage pantalone koje su totalno osveženje što se tiče modela pantalona za ovu sezonu, mada ako ne volite ovakav model, svakako je dobro došao i stari dobri jeans. Obična bela Zara majica u kojoj ćete se osećati komotno tokom radnog dana. Moj izbor su ovog puta bile visoke potpetice, ali ovakav model pantalona, po meni, dobro ide i na ravnu obuću. Ako volite detalje, možete slobodno upotpuniti vaš look jednim Choise naočarama ili možda Zara ogrlicom.
