Surrogacy allows those who cannot have children to create a family. Surrogacy in most cases is a choice made by mothers. This decision is an expression their free will. Banning surrogacy may be considered against women’s empowerment as it would suggest women cannot decide by themselves what is good for them. The money earned with surrogacy allows women with financial problems to improve their lives. There are many examples in which surrogates develop a close relation with the child and their parents. Surrogacy is often less traumatic than fertility treatments and can replace them when they fail. 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.
