Surrogacy is an arrangement in which a woman carries and delivers a child for another couple or person.
Aki Mukai is a Japanese talent who got a baby by using the surrogacy service. She used the service not because she didn’t want to suffer under the pain of childbirth, but uterus cancer was found after she was pregnant. Then she had to abandon her hope to have her own baby.
But she really wanted to have a baby with her husband, so she decided to use the surrogacy service.
She went to the US where host surrogacy is legally recognized. A woman in Nevada, the USA, gave birth for Aki Mukai and she finally got her baby.
After she came back to Japan, a problem came up against her, because surrogacy is strictly limited in Japanese law. The local government didn’t accept the baby as her own baby.
After this case happened, aki Mukai sued government.
