Surrogacy is legal and has become more prevalent in the USA, but it is banned in some of the countries (e.g., Germany, and China.) In the USA, commercial surrogacy is being normalized by celebrities like Kim Kardashian West and Sarah Jessica Parker. It is great that surrogate mothers were able to help couples who couldn’t conceive, yet there were many surrogacy cases that didn’t end well.
The legal regulation of surrogacy in the world is complicated and includes the following: banned, allowed between relatives up to the second degree of consanguinity, only altruistic was legal, or both gainful and altruistic forms were legal. In the USA, Canada, and Australia, laws vary by state.
In 2013, a surrogate mom refused to abort a baby with Down Syndrome. You can find out the story here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ceD2iSE_Gc&feature=youtu.be (Links to an external site.)
