The Government Acts to Prohibit Surrogacy Arrangement
Lancet. 1985 Apr 27; 1(8435): 994-995.
It is anticipated that the British government's Surrogacy Arrangements Bill will be law before the summer recess of Parliament. While not dealing with all issues raised by the Warnock Committee report, the bill responds to a perceived need for swift action because of public concern following the so-called "Baby Cotton" case. Both the advertising of surrogacy services and participation in negotiations regarding surrogacy will be forbidden. The position of physicians remains somewhat unclear. It appears that they may treat a surrogate mother but may not advise or participate in surrogate arrangements. (KIE abstract)
