The Child at the Heart of Surrogacy

From: Stolen Motherhood


This chapter focuses on the children at the "heart" of surrogacy, highlighting these children’s wellbeing, future, and all other considerations, which the author argues are practically absent from the discussion surrounding surrogacy at this point in time. It explores psychological, medical, and legal concerns, focusing on the needs and perspectives of children born of surrogacy.
