Couples Have More Options with Surrogacy

(Union Times San Diego) – While the number of families who seek surrogates to carry their babies is hard to gauge, the percentage of couples turning to this option may be on the rise. A 2010 report from the nonprofit Council for Responsible Genetics, citing data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology, shows the number of babies born via surrogates practically doubled between 2004 to 2008 from 738 to 1,400.
