The Presidential Ombudsman for Children's Rights, Mykola Kuleba, opposed commercial surrogacy in Ukraine. He wrote about this on his Facebook page.

Commercialization and permission to receive such a service in Ukraine facilitates the uncontrolled sale of Ukrainian children abroad. The situation with the babies in the hotel, which became widely known, once again shows the disempowerment of children born to surrogate mothers. The birth of a child far from the mother is unnatural. Thus, Ukraine is simply becoming an international online store with babies. And we don’t know the actual number of such children that Ukraine “supplies” in this way,” Kuleba said.

In his opinion, not a single state is obliged to “provide” families with children, moreover, foreign ones. Moreover, each child has an inalienable right to a family.

In this context, the concept of “mother” is omitted, which gave birth to a child but is not its genetic mother. Children who are in the hotel today actually have biological mothers in Ukraine. But while organizing the surrogate motherhood process, they have so far been left without parents. Both genetic and biological, " the Ombudsman noted.

He emphasized that surrogacy is the exploitation of women in order to generate private business income and meet the needs of adults. However, it violates the rights of the child.

"I definitely stand against commercial surrogacy, this is the objectification of the child and positioning him as a commodity," Kuleba added.

As we reported before, Presidential Commissioner for Children's Rights Mykola Kuleba got into an accident on a road near Kyiv.
