In this article we seek to explore the arguments for and against surrogacy. In the interest of objectivity, we will consider all angles, both positive and negative. It can be an emotive subject for obvious reasons, as we cannot escape the fact that surrogacy gives hope to individuals and couples who could not otherwise be able to create a family of their own. It also comes with complex social, moral, ethical, and legal issues that need to be considered. However, when surrogacy is practiced ethically and with a solid legal foundation, then the rights of surrogates and intended parents are all protected and respected equally.
