Amazing Dad’s

Here is the link to a recent Sunrise episode. Two dad’s through surrogacy, with their baby girls, talk about adoption in Australia and why commercial surrogacy overseas has become a more popular option for gay and infertile couples in Australia. Here are some of the key issues from their perspectives in relation to commercial surrogacy:

– inequality toward same sex couples in relation to adoption overseas

– the adoption process in Australia taking many years and rarely resulting in an actual adoption for the majority of applicants.

– co-parenting that can result from altruistic surrogacy arrangements in Australia

– current stigma surrounding commercial surrogacy
