Warnock Report on Human Fertilisation and Embryology
Lancet. 1984 Jul 28; 2(8396): 238-239.
Barrister Brahams agrees with most of the recommendations of Great Britain's Warnock Committee report, but she argues that the banning of all professional help for couples seeking surrogacy could be disastrous. Instead of rendering all surrogacy contracts illegal, the government should establish a limited agency that would provide licensing and control. If rare special cases were to be allowed, Brahams would prefer that surrogates not bear babies that are biologically their own since it would be morally and psychologically more difficult to give up such an infant. Because she sees no compelling evidence of scientific need, Brahams is opposed to the breeding of embryos for research. (KIE abstract)
