For couples who are aspiring to have their own child, surrogacy is a great option as they will have a baby that will be biologically theirs. Many childless couples opt for adoption, but then they have to ensure that the history of the child is good and will suit them or else there can be issues between them and the child. Such issues can be eliminated through surrogacy where the child will be the own flesh and blood of the couple. As the story in the description shows, a lot of things can go wrong with surrogacy when it is not regulated. The most common problems are when the parents don’t want to accept the baby, or when the surrogate mother wants to keep the newborn. Defining the legal responsibilities of the different parties will prevent such problems. As for many things, it is close to impossible to make surrogacy illegal on the global scale, which means that making it illegal in one country will not achieve much, as long as some other countries allow foreign couples to pay for surrogacy. Fertility is going down in developed countries, and there are not enough children for adoption. This means that more and more couples who want children will need to use assistive reproduction technology, or surrogacy when ART is not possible.
