Some time ago I wrote a blog post about how the Swedish state had decided to not legalize surrogacy, thereby restricting individual rights by dictating what we Swedish citizens can and cannot do with our own bodies and reproductive cells.
As a strong believer in self-ownership, I most definitely do not support this decision. I have already been looking into ways to bypass the law in case I ever want to use the eggs I’m currently in the process of getting frozen to have children in the future.
Luckily, such a way presented itself recently when a surrogacy agency opened its first office in Sweden. Surrogacy still cannot happen legally in Sweden but the agency will help clients find willing surrogates in the US and (unfortunately only for heterosexual couples) in Ukraine.
