I maintain that there is a lack of legal clarity within the UK on surrogacy. Surrogacy contracts are unenforceable and as such surrogacy is trust-based. Which is totally fine if that level of trust is there, but what happens if it isn't and intended parents are blinded by their desire to have a child? In other jurisdictions where contracts are enforceable this is a variable that is removed - the US remains the legal benchmark for surrogacy (in my opinion).
Reading the online comments on articles like this is something that I normally avoid but this time I did and frankly it shows how far we still have to go in educating people about surrogacy. But that is a good thing as I love teaching people about surrogacy and IVF.
