After our last post, Conceptual Options’ top 5 reasons a woman (& their family) decides to become a Surrogate, we found this great article posted in the Toronto Star that interviewed several women who have chosen to become surrogate mothers under Canadian law. As with Surrogates in the US, these women show extraordinary altruism in being a Surrogate.
In the article, one Surrogate described her reason for wanting to become a Surrogate:
“I’ve always been someone who has loved helping others and making others happy,” she says. “It’s one of those things that you do for someone and there’s no way they can actually repay you.”
We certainly think that these motivations are universal. Thoughts?
