Surrogacy: A Global Phenomenon
Surrogacy is a practice that has been regulated in various countries around the world, and has become a viable option for many people who want to start a family. At Comaping, we are aware of the importance of having a global vision on this issue, avoiding focusing solely on the perspective of a single country.
There is a variety of legislation on surrogacy in different regions of the world. Even in Europe, countries like Portugal, Greece, Gibraltar and the United Kingdom have regulated this practice. Each country has its own regulations, which reflects the diversity of approaches and attitudes towards surrogacy.
'Rental Womb' or Surrogacy?
Although the term 'surrogacy' is sometimes used to refer to surrogacy, it is important to mention that this term is less accepted and can be considered offensive. The terminology we use to talk about this process is important, as it reflects our respect and consideration for women who decide to become surrogate mothers.
Surrogacy in the United States and Canada
In countries like the United States and Canada, surrogacy is a well-established and regulated option for those who want to start a family. In both countries, there are laws and regulations that protect the rights of all parties involved, including the surrogate mother, the intended parents and, of course, the children.
These countries recognize that surrogacy can be a way to create a family through co-parenting. This recognition is an important step toward the acceptance of various forms of families, and highlights the importance of providing inclusive options for all who wish to be parents.
