"I Support Gestational Surrogacy" by Dylan Lesser

I feel that gestational surrogacy is a wonderful thing. It is a terrific choice for couples who cannot conceive a child through the normal means of conception. Gestational surrogacy is when the man in the relationship gives a semen sample and the woman gives a sample of her eggs which get inseminated in the womb of the surrogate that the couple decides to hold the child for nine months. Gestational surrogacy is basically adopting a child formed with your own DNA.
