Abstract
Surrogate motherhood and whether it should be legalized or not, has been a controversial area in Sweden. Swedish law has not any evident legislation prohibiting surrogate motherhood, but existing law can be interpreted as not allowing such arrangements.

Surrogate motherhood and whether it should be legalized or not, has been a controversial area in Sweden. Swedish law has not any evident legislation prohibiting surrogate motherhood, but existing law can be interpreted as not allowing such arrangements. Due to that, many couples in Sweden are going abroad in order to implement surrogate arrangements. Therefore, some problems have occurred when these children come to Sweden, since the law does not include them. The Swedish parliament has discussed the problem several times but without coming up with a solution. A Swedish state investigation studying this issue, was published in February this year. The state investigation concluded that surrogacy should not be allowed. However, it is up to the politicians, who take such decisions. In addition to that, this essay focuses on investigating the parliamentary members' position on the issue of the legalization of surrogacy and analyzing their arguments using a norm model. This is important because the eventual regulation of surrogacy, will result in that it will become a norm in the society. The essay concludes that Swedish parliamentary members have different opinions on the issue of surrogate motherhood. As there is a lack of research on surrogate motherhood, ethics and morality become the members’ starting point. Thus, the parliamentary members disagree on the issue if surrogate motherhood should or should not be legalized. This results in a particular problem situation since it affects some people in the Swedish society. (Less)
