The pros and cons of surrogate mothers

(上記TOPIC、英語で意見を論理的に述べる技術とトレーニング第7章より引用)

Essay

 Although some people are against surrogate mothers, I am for it for the two following reasons.
 The first reason is that it is not something for other people to meddle. It is none of other people’s business. What is right and what is wrong, what is happiness and what is not, are all subjective concepts and there is no objective answer to them. People should recognize the difference between subjective opinions and objective facts. Therefore, it is nonsense and extremely unintelligent to criticize other people’s way of life and force their subjective opinions on other people.
 The second reason is that it is possible that everyone involved can be truly happy about it. Surrogate mothers can be truly happy to help some couples who cannot procreate, the couples can be truly happy to have their children, and the children can be truly happy by having been raised by great parents. If everyone involved are truly happy, there is no need to criticize or ban it.
 In conclusion, I am for surrogate mothers for the aforementioned two reasons which are that it is not something for other people to meddle and it is possible that everyone involved can be truly happy about it.

メモ

代理母に対する賛否両論です。
私は、代理母とは、生みの親とは違う、育て親の事だと勘違いしていました笑
代理母とは、子供を作れないカップルに代わって、子供を産む人の事で、その存在は、知っていましたが、このエッセイを書くときは、勘違いしていました。
なので、最初に、5分間で書いたエッセイと、そのあとで、色々調べて書きなおしたもので、大きく違うものになりました。
