Australia Urges Cambodia to Crack Down on Surrogacy Services

August 3, 2016

(The Sydney Morning Herald) – Cambodia has told Australia that commercial surrogacy is prohibited in the country as an increasing number of Australian couples seek surrogacy services in the capital Phnom Penh. The edict leaves several dozen Australian couples who have gone to Cambodia seeking to become the biological parents to babies born to surrogate mothers open to possible imprisonment and fines for human trafficking.
