Contracts to Bear Children
Journal of Medical Ethics. 1985 Jun; 11(2): 61-65.
Davies, a Welsh law professor, examines four approaches that British law could take toward surrogate motherhood. One position is that of the majority of the Warnock Committee--criminal action against those making surrogacy arrangements. A second is the minority Warnock Committee view--regulation of surrogacy by a licensing authority. Approaches three and four are to enforce surrogate contracts or to declare such contracts as being contrary to public policy--the latter is the current legal policy. For the present, the author endorses the minority Warnock Committee approach as in the best interests of the child, pending evaluation of all the psychological, social, and moral ramifications.
