Surrogate Pregnancy Agreement

Jurisdictions that allow surrogacy sometimes offer an option for the intentional mother, especially if she is also the genetic mother, to be recognized as the legal mother without going through the process of abandonment and adoption. Often this involves a birth order [35] in which a court decides the legal ancestry of a child. These orders generally require the consent of all parties involved, including sometimes the husband of a married gestational member. Most jurisdictions provide only an order after birth, often because of the reluctance to force the surrogate mother to waive parental rights when she changes her mind after birth. Some surrogate mothers and intentional parents think it would be more convenient to simply download a surrogacy contract online. Although there are many sites that offer free downloads of surrogacy contracts, it is never advisable to try the surrogacy agreement without proper legal representation and advice. If the surrogacy contract is complete and correct, it can help to limit disputes and misunderstandings, while protecting all those involved in the surrogacy process: intentional parents, surrogates and especially the baby. Surrogacy is an agreement often supported by a legal agreement whereby a woman (the surrogate mother) agrees to give birth to another person or person who becomes a parent of the child after birth. Among gestational maternity regimens, between 19 and 33% of the signs of pregnancy are due to embryo transfer. Of these cases, 30-70% successfully allow parents or intentional parents to become parents of the resulting child. [8] If commercial surrogacy is legal, couples can use the help of third-party agencies to support the surrogacy process by finding a replacement and arranging a surrogacy contract with it. These agencies often check psychological tests and other medical tests of surrogates to ensure the best chance of a healthy pregnancy and childbirth. As a general rule, they also facilitate all legal issues concerning intentional parents and surrogates.

Given that India and other countries with large Hindu populations have become centres of fertility tourism, many questions have been raised about whether or not surrogacy conflicts with the Hindu religion. [54] While Hindu scholars have not discussed much of the subject, T.C. Anand Kumar, a well-known Indian reproductive biologist, says that there is no conflict between Hinduism and assisted reproduction. [55] Others have supported this attitude in reference to Hindu mythology, including a story in the Bhagavata Purana that suggests the practice of surrogacy:[54] Anthropological studies of surrogate mothers have shown that surrogate mothers use different disengagement techniques throughout pregnancy to ensure that they are not emotionally related to the baby. [18] [19] [20] Many surrogate mothers deliberately try to promote the development of an emotional bond between the mother and the lender child. [21] Jewish scholars and rabbis, who advocate an anti-mother surrogate attitude, often see it as a form of modern slavery in which women`s bodies are exploited and children are convenient. [52] Jews who have a religious obligation to participate “actively in the redemption of slaves,” practices considered human exploitation are morally condemned. [52] This thinking is consistent with the concerns of other groups regarding the link between surrogacy practices and forms of human trafficking in some countries with high-fertility tourism industries.
