Surrogacy is legal in Canada however in Quebec there is no legal standing. The relevant legislation and legal issues arising out of surrogacy agreements are complicated and the consequences for not following the laws regarding surrogacy in Canada can be very severe.
Here is a scenario:
Society has controversial views on surrogacy. Some may argue that being a surrogate mother helps the infertile, while others argue women takes advantage of surrogacy to preserve their physical image.
Surrogacy is legal in:
, Australia, New Zealand, India, Israel and in the USA however many states have their own laws on legality of surrogate parents
The church is pro-life which not only means not killing but also means actively supporting. Church’s moral assessment of surrogacy says that there can be serious harm when an infant’s right to his development in the uterus is played with. The Church claims this is one of the hard truths that we must endure if we believe that children are gifts with their own inherent dignity and we should not play God when creating a child.

Surrogacy is when another woman carries and gives birth to a baby for another couple. There are two types of surrogacy, full surrogacy and partial surrogacy. Full surrogacy is when the egg is taken from the woman and the sperm is taken from the man and both are implanted inside the surrogate mother. Partial surrogacy can be used when further infertility issues are evident, in this case donor eggs or sperm can be used, although in some countries the eggs of the surrogate mother cannot be used do to legal reasons. Once you have chosen surrogacy you may be given contraceptives to regulate your cycle, During the embryo transfer, a small catheter is inserted into your vagina then uterus. The embryos will then be placed through the catheter and up into the uterus for anticipated implantation. Following the embryo transfer the surrogate mother goes on mandatory bed rest for 2-3 days and withing two weeks you take a pregnancy test.
