Is Surrogacy a Sin?

How is Surrogacy Carried out?

Surrogacy is the method in which the eggs and sperm of the couples, who have no babies because of various reasons, are fertilized in a laboratory and then, a fertilized egg is placed in another mother's uterus. The surrogate mother is obliged only to carry the baby.

Since this procedure is forbidden in Turkey, Turkish couples receive support for legal affairs from different countries. Georgia is a good example.

Couples usually choose surrogate mothers themselves. The person selected as the surrogate mother should take some tests before the procedure. Also, the candidate should have a good psychological state. It is very important during the process since there is a risk in which a surrogate mother usually feels an attachment to the baby during pregnancy. A surrogate mather sign the contract with the help of the lawyer and the lawyer will explain every detail information about her rights and obligations.

Surrogacy in our Religion

In this regard, there is a fatwa of Religious Affairs in Turkey. The Presidency of Religious Affairs has also presented on its website that it is not allowed to have a baby through surrogacy. He also explained this with a verse from the Qur'an and stated that this situation is inconvenient in Islam. The reason for this is the psychological effect on the human being. There is not any problem for those who can stand the psychological effect of this situation Islamic scholars who say that this method causes problems from the sociological and psychological point of view, also point out that those who can cope with these effects can have children using this method.
