Why Surrogacy is Important for LGBTQ+ Couples
The LGBTQ+ community is not exempt from the desire to have children and raise a family. Over the years, the process for adoption by same-sex and trans couples has changed significantly, and these days more couples are looking into surrogacy options to pass on their genetics. The surrogacy process affirms their societal acceptance and Simple Surrogacy is a proud advocate for that cause.
Same-sex couples have historically not had all the rights that straight couples benefit from; they’ve had to fight for the opportunity to marry, be publicly out, and not face daily harassment and prejudice. Even growing a family has been a fight. LGBTQ+ couples face prejudice in the adoption system and the foster care system. Those restrictions are being moved from codified law to unconscious bias these days but are still everpresent. It’s no wonder that more gay couples are finding a way to have a biological family together.
Just as we don’t harass straight couples that want to have a family through surrogacy rather than adoption, we take the same stance with same-sex couples. Your family should be made however you want without the input of others. By affirming their choice to create a family through surrogacy, we welcome same-sex couples into a society that has historically asked them to step away.
Simple Surrogacy is also proud to work with trans couples. Surrogacy can be a form of gender affirmation. Many trans people who find themselves pregnant can experience discomfort, dysmorphia, and depression during what should be one of the happiest times in their lives. With a surrogate, trans people can grow their family while still feeling like themselves and maintaining their mental health.
Surrogacy is a beautiful journey that helps people grow their families where they otherwise would not be able to. Simple Surrogacy provides our clients with the highest standard of care in the surrogacy industry at an affordable price. That is our mission, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation.
