In Singapore, surrogacy is considered illegal and doesn't have the slightest chance for existence.
According to the Ministry of Health, in Singapore, the following are not allowed:
- the purchase and sale of embryos, spermatozoa, oocytes;
- spermsorting and freezing during the sex selection;
- the reduction after the transfer of more than one embryo;
Many couples from Singapore go to Ukraine, Laos and Malaysia to participate in the program banned in their country. But at the same time, they have no right to invite a surrogate mother from another country to Singapore; otherwise, local courts may step in.
At present, in Singapore IUI (intrauterine insemination) and ECF (extracorporeal fertilization) are suggested to use as infertility treatments. But, as statistics show, these methods are low-efficient.
