Norwegian Liberals Say No to Surrogacy and Euthanasia

The proposal to allow altruistic surrogati where the surrogate receives no financial reward for her pregnancy was opened for debate during the party congress on Sunday. 

Although some speakers both defended the proposal and voted for, it was still not enough for the party program to be changed. Venstre is still against all forms of surrogacy. The proposal especially received  great support from the young liberals. 

While the advocate of altruistic surrogacy suggested it is matter of freedom over people’s own body, opponents pointed out that allowing the practice would quickly end up as an exploitation of women. 

In the congress, liberal convention decided to adopt the change for egg donation. But a proposal from Young Liberals to allow euthanasia was rejected.
