CASE STUDY #4 In this case gestational surrogacy is being used. A woman has uterine cancer,and has to get her uterus removed. Because of this, she is unable to bear her own child. she freezes her eggs in hopes of having a surrogate later on in the future. During this surrogacy, the mother has no genetic ties to the child. Also during the process of surrogacy, the woman's eggs are planted in a surrogate and the husbands sperm will also be used to fertilize the egg. The couple had payed approximately $36,000 between the agency and the surrogate. When the baby is born, the surrogate "refuses" to give up the child because shes grown "too attached " to the child. A legal battle ensues.
