Israeli Government Considers Surrogacy Reform for Same-Sex Couples


Following the crisis that a number same sex Israeli couples found themselves in in Thailand a few weeks ago, the Israeli Health Ministry has announced that it will be proposing a new bill related to surrogacy. The bill would allow same-sex couples to use surrogate mothers in Israel. Furthermore it is proposed that individuals (and not just married couples) are able to use Israeli surrogates.

The bill has been controversial, though if passed it would represent a root and branch reform of surrogacy law in Israel, extending the availability of it and reducing the costs for same sex couples who have, hitherto, had to seek surrogates abroad.
