It is also impossible other than by surrogacy for same-sex couples. Unfortunately, there is an opinion in the world that surrogacy should not be used as a way to solve the problem of not being able to have children. Why do we think we can implement the treatment of some conditions and not to others? What's wrong with creating a new life? The life of a baby more than desired.
