Last Tuesday, Extraordinary Conceptions, an American company based in southern California and specialising in promoting contacts with a view to surrogacy, announced its intention to set up a Spanish office in Barcelona. The reason behind this new centre is “to respond to the increasing demand for surrogacy in Europe”.
The new centre should open its doors on 1 October 2017.
Note from Gènéthique:
The American company has already attempted to extend its influence in France through the creation of a French internet site (see: American company offers surrogacy in France: the “juriste pour l’enfance” (lawyers for children” association registers a complaint) and by holding informative meetings in several cities. This approach has fuelled reaction from several political figures (see: Surrogacy: what next?).
