Surrogacy exploits women
Most women are forced into surrogacy by coercion or economic need.
The debate framing surrogacy as a 'market' implies that the product being bought and sold is children.
The artificial production of a child is an extreme form of consumerism, creating a 'market' for children. Rather than acknowledging the importance of the gestational process of a child bonding with their mother in the womb, it makes the child a commodity because the successful embryo is selected from a group of embryos on account of certain attractive characteristics that it has.
The market for surrogacy does not involve the buying and selling of children, but the sale of gestational labour. Surrogacy is not carried out because of a desire to create a genetically 'perfect' child, but because of a desire for a couple to have a child of their own that is related to at least one parent.
[P1] Surrogacy commodifies children. [P2] It is inherently wrong to create a market which buys and sells people.
[Rejecting P1] Surrogacy does not commodify the life of a child, but rather the gestational labour a couple are unable to do themselves.
