Embryo transfer must be performed to the mother who is the source of the oocytes
it is in vitro fertilisation (test tube babies)
I researched it and found that this link http://www.bioline.org.br/request?mf05031 was very informative. I've quoted a pretty key passage from it here:
"In summary, HG Bishop Gregorios welcomes and accepts in vitro fertilization only under the circumstances where the oocyte and sperm are taken from the husband and wife and fertilization occurred in vitro with no doubt about gamete mixing. Embryo transfer must be performed to the mother who is the source of the oocytes. All the steps of in vitro fertilization should occur with the approval of the husband and wife and the treating physician should be alert to the fact that no mixing of gametes should occur and there should be no doubt in anyone's mind regarding the source of the gametes. "
Hope this helps ;D
thanks guys for your help
good to know i guess...but why is that?
1. Its against nature.
2. It can cause a lot of problems. I would imagine that the surroate mother would become very attached to the child, having carried it for 9months. And although I'm sure she gets plenty of money for doing it, it must still be very difficult for her to just give the child away after that.
WHAt exactly is a surrogate?
Basically when a couple are unable to have children, the woman's egg, after it has been fertilised, is placed into another woman's womb (this woman is called the surrogate), who carries the child and eventually gives birth to it, at which point she gives the child back to its biological parents.
