This Article analyzes the Warnock Report [UK] and the Surrogacy Arrangements Act [UK] in light of existing practices and laws in the United States and Great Britain. Section II provides a description of surrogacy practices and the uncertain legal environment in which they operate. Section III compares the Surrogacy Arrangements Act with Canadian, American, and Australian legislative proposals. Section IV then examines in more detail the commonly voiced ethical objections to surrogacy agreements an concludes that these objections do not warrant criminalization of surrogacy agreements. Finally, Section V offers suggestions on the enforcement of surrogacy agreements.
