More over, the Surrogacy is also known as embryo technology. Surrogacy is using either egg or sperm of husband and wife are fertilised and replaced in the other woman's womb. In case, after the women give birth to the baby and the woman hand the baby to the husband and wife. And, Gamete In-fallopian Transfer (GIFT) is also known as embryo technology.

Catholic also believe that all form of embryo technology involve fertilisation which taking place apart from the sex act. As well as Catholic believe that God intended to know that they're wants to be part of the sex act. Samuel shows 'For he love, Hamah, but the Lord has shut up her womb.' He means if women can not have children which it's happen naturally and God has already decided what will happen to the women. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
