Man Pleads Guilty to Sexually Abusing His Twin Surrogate Babies

April 22, 2016

(The Sydney Morning Herald) – A regional Victorian man has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing his infant surrogate twin daughters – and two young nieces from NSW  – in a case certain to fuel debate about international surrogacy laws. The man was already abusing his nieces when he spent $44,000 to have the twins conceived overseas using a donor egg with the clear intention of sexually exploiting the children. He began abusing them when they were 27 days old and continued for seven months.
