Surrogacy

Why is surrogacy still such a controversial subject? I have been doing my research on this topic. I talked to some people who are fertile and have no problem in having children. Most of their reviews were negative about this. They said it was too controversial and risky. I agree it is risky. But controversial, still? I don't think so. It is 2018 people. I guess they don't see it through the eyes of the people who cant have children naturally. They don't know what we go through. So many people even discourage it. If you are not a supporter, fine. But at least don't discourage it. It is benefitting so many people in this world. So many clinics have opened that are doing this for people on comparatively lower costs. I had my son through surrogacy too. I went to Ukraine for it. I really wanted to spread awareness about this topic. I'd really like to hear your views about this,

    Surrogacy has been a controversial topic for decades. Although it became popular in the late 1980’s through the 1990’s, the practice of surrogacy has been around since biblical times. The common misconceptions about this treatment for infertile couples are based on legal, social, and ethical aspects. Socially, the public may question the motives of the surrogate mother and why the seeking parents don’t rely on adoption to help children who are already born. Lastly, this topic raises question to the seeking parents ethical values and what religion may say about this treatment. Legally, there have been infamous cases where the media how shone a great amount of negative limelight on this process, but the cases when the contract between the couple and surrogate becomes invalid are the ones that get the most attention. There seems to be a lack of stories about the successfulness of surrogacy and how it has improved the lives of many. People become quick to judge the surrogate mother and/or the seeking parents. However, although there are many that oppose this common treatment, there are no reasons why the public should have such a strong voice in such a personal decision. That's why I went for the proses in Bio tex clinic.

    Hi Melissa! You are right. Surrogacy is still a controversial topic and there is a lot of negativity surrounding this subject. Unfortunately people don’t really know what surrogacy is or are not aware of it completely. Surrogacy is a beautiful process in my opinion and it was the only way for me to have a family. After being diagnosed with infertility and 2 failed IVF I was left with 2 choices. Surrogacy or adoption. I always wanted my own biological child so I went with surrogacy but when I decided to go for this option, I had to face a lot of negativity and harsh words. Unfortunately people will always degrade what they don’t understand just to make themselves feels superior. Everyone deserves to be happy and to be a parent.

    Hi! Hope you are doing great. Thank you for sharing your views about the surrogacy. It is really an informative post. I totally agree with you. Surrogacy cannot be controversial due to risks. Risks are also attached when you are conceiving naturally. It can be a blessing for those who are rush to complete their families. It is the best way of getting a baby. We should support surrogacy for those who can not conceive naturally. It is a wish of every lady to complete her family. It is just like a natural process. And yes there are famous clinics in Ukraine. One of my Friends also went for the surrogacy there. God bless you.

    Hi Melissa, Hope you are doing well. Surrogacy has been a controversial topic from for decades. No one wants to talk about it. But i am in favor of it. Surrogacy is a blessing. Many infertile couples can now have a child because of it. I really appreciate the efforts of surrogacy clinics and surrogates. But there are few clinics among us that don't care about the patients like us. I am an infertile. I can't have a baby because of my disease. My husband and i decided to go for surrogacy. We decided to contact Lotus clinic for the process. My husband was busy because of work so i contacted Lotus clinic via email to know about the process. I want to know the charges and different packages for surrogacy. But they didn't reply to my emails. I am really dishearten. How can they be so non professionals? I am not gonna recommend them to anyone. Please suggest me good clinics for the treatment.

    I completely agree with you! I'm an advocate for Physician's Surrogacy here in San Diego. My goal is to find women willing to either donate their eggs or become a surrogate. The concept makes a lot of people uncomfortable because it is "controversial". I'm really happy to hear the surrogacy worked for you! It is a beautiful thing truly.

    Hi Melissa! How are you? Hope you are in good health. You are right to speak up about surrogacy. I find that there is a lot of negative views from people regarding surrogacy and most of these people are naturally able to conceive. I am also infertile and like you I also had to resort to surrogacy as my means of starting a family. When I decided to go for this decision I had to face a lot of negativity and people kept of suggesting me that it was immoral and unethical but they forgot to see life through my eyes. Being infertile is really hard and I am sure you can relate to it. Surrogacy is a beautiful process in my perspective and I stand with surrogacy.

    Hello there. I agree with your point. You are right not everyone in this world can have children naturally. We really need to aware people around the globe. Surrogacy is such a blessing. Helping people to get happiness. Many families got completed through it. I was infertile for around 15 years. I suffered a lot and couldn't be happy. My life was incomplete unless I went for a surrogate child. I feel blessed to have him. Life seems to be smooth and happy than ever. I believe people should stop taking it negatively. What's wrong if someone is having their share of happiness through it. Stay positive no matter whatever the situation prevails. I wish luck to everyone.

    Hi There. Hope you are doing fine. I read your post. I agree. This is 2018 and people still frown upon such things. What is wrong with them. They make issues even worse than they already are. I hope they come to their senses.

    Hello Melissa, hope you are fine? Good to know that you are doing research on surrogacy. I know surrogacy is the most controversial topic. Mostly those people are against surrogacy who have children, ask from those who don't have children. We cant feel their pain. They are helpless so in this case, surrogacy is the only hope for those people. Surrogacy is a blessing for infertile couples. People are against surrogacy due to risk. There are many risks while conceiving naturally. Dear don't listen, people, they will always discourage you. I am happy that surrogacy works for you. I am also infertile. I had chosen surrogacy like you. Many people tried to discourage me. My family was against it. I was successful to convince them. I am always in favour of surrogacy.
