Surrogacy and Exploitation?

Surrogacy provisions were part of the first version of this General Scheme. If the Government goes ahead separately with its proposed Assisted Human Reproduction Bill, that would in effect make a reproductive slave of the surrogate mother, and would embed the practice of IVF which, as ordinarily practised, relies on the foreseen wastage of 96% of human embryos conceived in vitro [i.e. ‘on glass’]. Surrogacy, as practised, frequently involves the deliberate abortion of one of the embryos conceived and implanted. This is therefore treating the human embryo as a disposable commodity and not as a person.
