Examination of Approving Conditions of Surrogacy-Overcoming the Instrumentalization of the Body by Caring-
This paper considers the question of whether a surrogacy uses the woman's body as an instrument or not. Additionally, the issues of what is human dignity within the surrogacy and what is the condition for not using the body of the surrogate mother as an instrument are examined. The use of a surrogacy brings up the issue of the restructuring of family values regarding the birth of a child. The surrogacy will provide an opportunity to review the concept of human dignity. Furthermore, in order not to use the woman's body as an instrument, the following things are necessary: the surrogate mother should not ask for payment, or make undue profits in exchange for the surrogacy; she should be protected from social damage; there should be much support towards the surrogate mother; there should be consideration between the parties concerned, as well as between all persons involved; the client should hold a sincere attitude from the time of meeting the surrogate mother.
Key words:surrogacy, body, an instrument, caring, instrumentalization
