More surrogacy stories out of Thailand: A Thai surrogate wants the baby back she carried, claiming that he may be her biological son.
A surrogate mother is seeking help from Thai authorities to get the infant back from his American father because she suspects he is her biological son, a news report said on Tuesday.
The case is the latest controversy to emerge from the country’s surrogacy industry, after an Australian couple were accused of abandoning their surrogate baby with Down syndrome last year and a Japanese man was found to have fathered at least 16 babies with surrogate mothers for unknown motives.
Thailand’s interim parliament last month passed a law that bans foreigners from seeking surrogacy services to end the “rent-a-womb” industry, but the ban will come into force only 90 days later and cannot be applied retroactively.
The 34-year-old woman in the latest controversy, who cannot be named, wants to get back the baby she gave birth to in January because she says he could be her biological son, The Nation reported.
