"The final professional word for the practitioner in family and child law" Phillip Taylor MBE...
‘Our society has moved on from when surrogacy laws were first introduced 30 years ago and, now, they are not fit for purpose.Scottish Law Commissioner, David Johnston QC, said:
For many, having a child is the best day of their lives and surrogacy can be the only option for some who want a genetic link to the baby. But the issues are difficult and there is no quick fix.
Now we want all those with an interest to get involved and help us make the law fit for the modern world.’
‘Surrogacy is becoming more common every year, so it’s important that we have the right laws in place to protect all involved.
That’s why we’ll be consulting widely to make sure we have surrogacy laws that work for the parents, the surrogate and, most importantly, the child.’
