This chapter argues that individuals have the right to sell and buy sexual reproductive services by way of surrogacy contracts. It reviews four objections to surrogacy based on commodification, exploitation, gender inequality, and children’s interests, and outlines ways in which the practice can and ought to be regulated.

Keywords: autonomy; children; commodification; exploitation; feminism; gender inequality
