Confronting the menace of surrogacy

From Mrs Margaret Heavens Sir, I was delighted that Eileen Cream felt able to respond to my letter of 19 May. Her unhappiness about being unable to trace her parents is a clear indication of why the future of the child must be considered whether we are talking about in-vitro fertilisation, surrogacy or adoption.

Despite legal safeguards, often disregarded, individuals in society seem increasingly to feel that that their own desires for a child must be immediately gratified, without a thought about how the child may feel in years to come

As a professional with a duty to respect my patients' confidentiality,

I am unable to put their case as well as they can themselves. I want to encourage people like Eileen Cream to speak out about their experiences and feelings.

She is not alone. If more speak out, the right people might begin to take notice and change things.

Yours faithfully, MARGARET HEAVENS Essex IG9 5QE
