Surrogacy in the UK

In the UK, surrogacy is altruistic and only available to citizens of the country. A surrogate mother can be recognized as the mother of a child even if she is not genetically related to him. Given the uncomfortable and risky conditions set out in UK law, its citizens are forced to undergo surrogacy programs in Ukraine or Russia, where they can safely achieve their dream of becoming parents.

Although, for the sake of fairness, it is worth noting that the basis of the surrogacy law in force in the UK was laid down in the 1985 Surrogacy Act, which is going to be amended or supplemented in the near future, taking into account the changes in public opinion in the field of surrogacy that have occurred in recent decades.
