Surrogacy is a form of slavery. This time it’s not groups of ultra conservatives who are saying this but, slightly surprisingly, several feminist associations in Europe. However, it seems less odd if one looks more closely at what exactly is being denounced in a proposal text at the United Nations for a ‘Convention for the abolition of surrogacy on the same model as the one for the abolition of slavery.’ Considering the timid approach of governments such as those in Belgium and France to the debate around the simplification of legal recognition of foreign surrogate mothers. However, women’s movements warn that, in many cases, the surrogate mother’s fundamental rights are totally trampled. This means there is a long way to go in the regulation of international surrogacy.
