The National Constitution of Colombia states in Article 42-6: “Children born in or out of wedlock, adopted and procreated naturally or with scientific assistance, have equal rights and duties. The law will regulate the responsible offspring.”
The legal precedent to include surrogacy arrangements in this definition is present in The Constitutional Court’s Sentence T 968 of 2009 which expresses:
“In the Colombian legal system there is no express prohibition for the realization of this type of agreements or agreements.
However, regarding the techniques of assisted reproduction, within which surrogate or surrogate motherhood is located, the doctrine has considered that they are legitimated legally, under Article 42-6 of the Constitution, which provides that “Children born in Marriage or outside it, adopted or procreated naturally or with scientific assistance, has equal rights and duties.”
