Just saw on my news feed on Facebook that some people thing surrogacy is evil. That parents who cannot have their own biological children the old fashioned way should not ever turn to surrogacy because the babies borne from said procedure suffer. That psychological studies prove that babies born to surrogate mothers know whose body they arrived through and do not tolerate being parented by other people very well.
I'm kind of shocked. I'm an attachment parent and know that bonding is very important, but I do not think that if I had died or given my babies up for adoption that they could not bond with an adoptive mother. I don't think children raised by people other than the woman who birthed them are doomed to a lifetime of misery and mental illness. Babies are programmed to develop a bond with the woman who birthed them, but they are also resilient and adaptable, and I don't think its some great evil.
What do you guys think? Is surrogacy bad for babies?
