    DescriptionThis blog examines the implications of the current COVID-19 pandemic, which has seen unprecedented restrictions placed upon citizens across the globe, for international surrogacy. It concludes that while the pandemic does indeed pose some novel issues – such as the potential for babies born to surrogates who live abroad during this time period to be stranded with no legal parents or caregivers – in many ways the current situation simply serves to magnify the existing criticisms of and concerns about the UK’s regulation of surrogacy.
