Would you ever consider surrogacy if you couldn't have children of your own? Also, do you think surrogate mothers have any rights to the child they carried even though it was another womans eggs, and another mans sperm, should she have rights? Why or Why not?

I agree with asgtswife04; a surrogate mother is still a life-giver. If it wasn't for that woman, that child would not be there, so she ought to at least be an aunt figure in that child's life. I know I couldn't bear a child for another woman, unless it was one of my sisters MAYBE, nor could I have another woman bear my child. I love carrying my own babies; knowing that my guy's kid is moving inside me. I wouldn't be able to give that experience to someone else. Blessed Be

you know, that is a very difficult situation. for that surrogate mother to carry a child for nine months, feeling every movement that that baby makes and then having to release the child to the parents. it takes a very special person to do that sort of thing and i commend the women that do it. It's a lot of sacrafice on the woman's part. As far as being a part of that child's life...i think in some situations it is a good thing. They always need to talk it over with the couple they are doing this for. If that couple doesn't want that, then she needs to consider if she can deal with that after the child is born. You always get attached even when the child is in the womb and if that is not an option the surrogate mother should always consider that before agreeing to go along with the surrogancy. I think it's a great idea though for them to be able to keep in touch and have some part in that child's life. She helped get them there, so why not become something like and aunt or something like that.

I could do this as I think it is simply giving a service of your tummy to a lady who has a broken one! I dont think the mother should have any rights as she has given up the child which wasnt hers in the first place so why would she want some?
