Ciudadanos has presented a bill to regulate surrogacy where you can see the conditions under which this type of pregnancy would be allowed.
Surrogacy is giving a lot to talk about. It consists of an assisted reproduction technique in which a woman becomes pregnant with a baby from another person, that is, she ‘lends or rents’ her uterus to gestate the life of a new being from whom she will later ignore because she will give it to other people. . The genetic material is agreed and through In Vitro Fertilization the woman is fertilized with the embryo of the couple who wants to have the child. This is also known colloquially as ‘surrogate bellies’, but this concept is not entirely correct since a pregnancy not only occurs in the womb, it has to see the entire physical and mental sphere of the woman who becomes pregnant.
WHAT DOES CITIZENS IN SPAIN PROPOSE?
Ciudadanos has recently registered in Congress a bill to regulate surrogacy in our country to make it legal, but only if it is done altruistically. There are some conditions that must be met for this practice to be legal in our country according to what Albert Rivera and his Citizens party propose:
– That the woman who will carry the baby has reached the age of 25
– That the woman has been a mother before
– Have no criminal record of drug or alcohol use
– That is of Spanish nationality
– That they have a stable socioeconomic situation and that they undergo all the necessary medical controls during pregnancy
– You will not be able to charge anything for doing this since it must be a totally altruistic gesture to facilitate others who may be parents
For people who love the baby
– Have a minimum of 25 and a maximum of 45 years
– Be Spanish or have residency
– If it is a couple, they must be married or in a relationship recognized by law
– You must be incompatible with assisted reproductive techniques
This project also proposes that there be fines of up to a thousand euros for minor offenses and up to ten thousand euros for the most serious. But in addition to up to one million euros for the very serious that would include paying the pregnant woman to ‘rent’ her belly. Only expenses arising from pregnancy, childbirth and related aspects can be paid, but in no case should the pregnant woman be paid. Without a doubt, it is a subject full of debate and diverse opinions.
