Contract surrogacy is officially little more than ten years old although surrogate mothering is a practice that has been known since biblical times In 1986 alone 500 babies had been born to mothers who gave them up to sperm donor fathers for a fee and the practice is growing rapidly For this reason there are many questions and doubts that arise from this subject Often there are many legal difficulties that come about with surrogate parenting In some states the contracts that insure the infertile couple the baby of the surrogate mother mean nothing This in turn can cause huge problems if the surrogate mother were to change her mind about giving up her child Who has the rights to the child in this awful situation Surrogate parenting is a wonderful alternative for infertile couples as long as all partys involved are educated on the subject and are fully aware of the pros and cons of this risky business transaction Unfortunately laws on surrogate parenting arent very helpful Increasing numbers of surrogate custody cases are finding their way into the courtrooms The most dramatic problem arises when the surrogate mother decides she wants to keep the babyWhether she decides early or late in the pregnancy at birth or after the child is born the ultimate issue is whether she or the infertile couple have parental rights How is the law to respond to this kind of problem Normally people would agree that a contract is a contract and therefore the infertile couple should be the ones to receive the baby Unfortunately for some of us more sympathetic people this decision is not that simple By changing her mind the surrogate mother is showing maternal feelings that are surely not reprehensible Although she has promised to give up the baby
