Best Answer

In order to be a surrogate mother (and go through and agency) you are required to have a physical and psychological exam. Both of these need to prove that there is no risk to your or the baby if you were to becom pregnant. The psychological exam is to prove that you are emotionally prepared to hand the child over to it's parents at the time of the delivery.

Diferent states have different laws. In some states it is not legal to be a surrogate mother unless you are a "compassionate surrogate mother" in which case you will receive no money for your role in carrying and delivering the child.

What is the difference between common and solemn form in probating a will?

Common form is when a will is admitted to probate based on the will itself, which the Surrogate Court acccepts on its face, because it lives up to all the formal requirements and is not challenged. Solemn form is when a will is admitted to probate after some scrutiny by the Surrogate, where the intent of the testator comes into question, or the will is challenged due to some disfunction of form in the will itself.

What does cloning look like?

You wouldn't be able to see it because all the important steps are microscopic. First the DNA of a normal cell is removed and placed inside an egg cell which has had it's own DNA removed. (That is for artificial cloning of course.) The egg cell is then placed in a surrogate mother and develops as a normal child would. (Except that it would be geneticly identical to the individual who donated the DNA and have no relation to the surrogate mother.)

What are the advantages and disadvantages for being surrogate mother?

Advantages: 1. It would give you the chance to help the mother who can't carry her child for whatever reason. 2. You could get paid a lot of money(depending on the hospital). Disadvantages: 1. A potential illness could be inserted into your body. 2. 9 months of being uncomfortable. 3. Separation from the child could be difficult. 4. Depending on if your related to the mother or not, you would not be living in your house for the duration of the pregnancy, instead you would be at the hospital. 5. The parent(s) could die or become unable to care for the child, leaving you with the decision on whether or not to keep it. I know it seems like there is more disadvantages to advantages, being a surrogate can be a life-changing experience. All I want to remind is, if your planning on doing this: 1. Pray about it. Hard. 2. Consult your pastor and (or) your relatives. 3. Pray some more. Good luck:)
