Surrogacy and Abortion

The National Post:

In Canada, negotiating how to deal with pregnancy crises like possible serious disability is a “very important” part of bringing together surrogate mothers and intended parents, said Sara Cohen, a fertility lawyer.

Sometimes, “what we are looking for … in a gestational carrier is one who is going to understand that this is not her child, so it’s not her decision to make,” she said. “Is it her body? Yes, it’s her body, but it’s not her decision to make.”

And what if she changes her mind after she signs the contract?  

Can you forfeit your so-called "choice"?
