With an emphasis on the comparison of UK law – where only altruistic surrogacy is permitted – and US law- where some states permit commercial surrogacy – Jemma highlights the flaws the UK system presents, and the resulting consequences this creates for commissioning parents after the birth of a child conceived by way of surrogacy. The article also addresses the decline we are seeing in international adoptions, a direct response to the sharp increase of interest in surrogacy.
