Portuguese parliament approved on Friday the law authorizing surrogacy, which is the commercial contract that allows the hiring of a woman to be pregnant and give birth to a child who will be delivered to other people.
The new diploma received positive opinions from the National Council for Medically Assisted Procreation and the Portuguese Society for Reproductive Medicine, which added an article limiting this right to natural citizens or permanent residents of Portugal.
According to the approved law, the pregnant woman for hire must have already been the mother of her own child.
It is also decided that the contract should receive prior authorization from the National Council for Medically Assisted Procreation, which is the Portuguese entity that oversees the entire process.
