Say a couple can't have a child. And say they get their respective "parental material" and have a doctor do in vitro fertilization. They find a surrogate, and get the embryo implanted in her womb.
Hypothetically, if the surrogate, at just before the end of the first trimester, determines that she no longer wants to carry the child, can she get an abortion?
Hypothetical #2, if the parents, at just before the end of the first trimester, determine that they no longer want the child, can they make the surrogate get an abortion?
Keep in mind that courts don't generally (ever?) enforce surrogacy contracts, so who ever has the right to an abortion in this case would completely trump any claims of the other party, including breach of contract compensation.
So, myself being entirely against abortion (except to protect the life of the mother), I'd say no one has the right to abortion in this case. But that's not a valid answer to this question. I'm not completely sure what all are relevant considerations in this case. I'd love to get the thoughts of others. Tell me what you think.
So tell me what you want, what you really really want
