Already in 2005, FAFCE invited the Members of the PACE to reflect in depth on the problems that may arise in surrogacy arrangements and on other objections to surrogacy[i].

Whilst recognising the natural desire of every person to have children, we stress that the practice of surrogacy engenders a number of ethical issues, undermining the human dignity of all involved parties and the dignity of human procreation.

Besides describing this practice and its dangers, FAFCE wishes to contribute to the ongoing debate, giving a glimpse of the actions taken by European institutions and present possible ways forward in this briefing note (to download below).
