  • Thailand outlaws foreign surrogacy
    a member of Thailand s National Legislative Assembly Thailand was rocked by several surrogacy scandals last year including allegations that an Australian couple abandoned a baby boy with Down syndrome while taking his healthy twin sister Another case involved a Japanese man who fathered at least 15 babies using Thai surrogates in what local media called the baby factory Critics of the new law say that making commercial surrogacy illegal could push the industry underground making it harder for patients to access quality physicians and medical care But some are sceptical that the legislation will even be implemented Law enforcement in South East Asia is famously lax wrote BBC correspondent Jonathan Head Thailand s junta known as the National Council for Peace and Order disbanded the upper house Senate following a May coup and placed all law making authority in the hands of an interim parliament hand picked by the military rulers MORE ON THESE TOPICS surrogacy surrogacy law Thailand This article is published by Xavier Symons and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we

  • BioEdge: Professionalise surrogacy, say New Zealand academics
    intending parents and the surrogate mother quarrel over the fate of the baby In a commercial model parents often demand that the baby be aborted which treats the surrogate as a mere vessel and denies her right to bodily integrity In an altruistic model the intending parents can just walk away if there are problems leaving the mother with the baby or the decision whether to abort What the authors proposed is the creation of a professional cadre of registered surrogates working within a government instrumentality with set fees and civil servants who can support the mother and parents if there are difficulties The professional model emphasizes the ethical dimension of surrogacy they believe payment should not be tied to the delivery of a healthy infant Although many critics of commercial surrogacy claim that it is the payment itself that is pernicious we argue that the flaw lies in the way payment is managed For example in cases where the surrogate agrees to an abortion she should still receive full payment so that she is not penalized for doing the right thing The intended parents are not buying a baby but committed service which may include an abortion Her financial situation should not be a factor in her decision whether to have an abortion Further in the professional model the intended parents would be the legal parents from the moment the baby is born This ensures certainty for both parties and best serves the needs and interests of the child The intended parents should not be able to abandon the baby any more than the surrogate should be able to withhold it from them MORE ON THESE TOPICS surrogacy This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it

    was facilitated within Australia he commented in a recent interview Australian Surrogacy lawyer Stephen Page agrees The reality is if Australians are going in such great numbers to developing countries such as India and Thailand with the possibility of exploitation sure it s much better to have it here where it can be regulated But others are questioning the very practice of commercial surrogacy Feminist Renate Klein sees it as heartless exploitative capitalist enterprise Writing in the Canberra Times Dr Klein argued that we should get rid of commercial surrogacy all together There is no right to a child children are not commodities and surrogates are not just suitcases or angels depending on your point of view Introducing commercial surrogacy in Australia is not the answer Reducing demand for all types of surrogacy is MORE ON THESE TOPICS surrogacy surrogacy law Thailand This article is published by Xavier Symons and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a donation Commercial media must contact us for permission and fees Some articles
