example of what is needed:
Surrogate parenting is a controversial practice in which a woman becomes pregnant and carries a child to term for another person or couple. In doing so, the woman makes the miracle of parenthood possible for people who are biologically or ethically unable to give birth. At the same time, the surrogate can earn a much-needed fee for providing her services. For these reasons, legal restrictions should not be part of this very personal and private transaction, but the United States should adopt a code of ethics pertaining to surrogacy.
SUPPORTING POINT 1
Surrogacy should not be illegal because it benefits parents who want children, but who are unable to conceive.
SUPPORTING POINT 2
A singular code of ethics would help to alleviate confusion and potential misunderstandings due to differing guidelines from state to state.
SUPPORTING POINT 3
Surrogacy programs in other countries have been ethical and successful when clear guidelines are in place.
Families may not feel the same affection toward a child born to a surrogate mother.
RESPONSE TO COUNTER-ARGUMENT 1
While the feelings of extended family members cannot be accounted for, the immediate family would not feel differently toward the child than they would toward an adopted child, a stepchild, etc.
Surrogate mothers can be taken advantage of, because there is a higher value placed on the baby’s needs than on the woman’s.
RESPONSE TO COUNTER-ARGUMENT 2
As many people wait until they are nearing the end of their reproductive life to have children, it will be increasingly important for our society to understand the full benefits and implications of alternative means of assisted reproduction, such as surrogacy. It is clear that unregulated surrogacy can result in serious ethical, legal, and physical problems for those involved. However, surrogacy arrangements made with care and with the well-being of all involved at the forefront are generally beneficial to all parties. The United States should be proactive in creating a set of parameters to guide the ethical aspects of surrogacy. This will ensure that the growing surrogacy industry has a foundation of strong ethical guidelines in place to protect surrogate mothers, potential parents, and the children resulting from surrogacy arrangements.
