Ukrainian Egg Donation and Surrogacy Agency

"Every child begins the world again ... " Henry David Thoreau

The advances in medically assisted reproduction that made it possible to produce human pre-embryos in-vitro have been among the most significant achievements of the past 25 years. For many couples who were previously considered sterile, the development of the new reproductive techniques has offered new opportunities to conceive.

 

Fertility legislation varies from country to country, being guided also by religious beliefs within those countries. Many different aspects of the processes used that are regulated and found as something permissible in one country, may be banned outright in another. Each one of us also has our own personal opinions, which complicate things from ethical point of view even more.

On the other hand, the technologies used in assisted reproduction have brought up a host of new legal issues. When third parties are involved, such as in Egg Donation and Surrogacy Programs, the legal system needs to evolve in order to protect the rights of all participants. Legislation comes into play at almost every stage, from whether you will be allowed fertility treatment in the first place, to how long frozen embryos may be stored, the selection process of embryos, the maximum number of embryos that may be transferred etc.

By this reason, our company specializes in this emerging law field in order to make the rights, responsibilities, and intentions of all those involved clear in a legal sense. On the other hand, all of us are aware that fertility treatment overseas implicates handling a handful of the associated medical, financial and emotional issues can be overwhelming especially when combined with the heartbreak of infertility.
