Joint submission to the Special Rapporteur on compensated gestational surrogacy as the sale of children

8 July, 2019

 

A group of organizations, academics and individual experts, have expressed collective concerns and endorsed an agreed list of  points about equating surrogacy where there is a monetary exchange to the sale of children in recent reports by the Special Rapporteur. Equating compensated gestational surrogacy as the sale of children is deeply problematic. It mischaracterizes and misapprehends the motivations of intended parents and the women who provide gestational surrogacy services. This perspective / position is not that of the Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) or other human rights experts or mechanisms. See the full submission below.
