Surrogacy is the term most often used to describe arrangements in which a woman who is, or is to become, pregnant agrees permanently to surrender the child(ren) born of that pregnancy to another person or couple (the commissioning persons(s)).1 Surrogacy may be 'altruistic' (where the surrogate receives no payment or restricted reimbursement of 'reasonable expenses' associated with her pregnancy) or 'commercial' (where the surrogate is paid a fee beyond expenses and costs).2 Over the past half century, as assisted reproductive technologies developed,3 and commercial surrogacy occurred in some jurisdictions, ethical and legal issues surrounding the practice were hotly debated.4
