Father’s Hope for Single Parent Surrogacy Law Change

August 18, 2016

(BBC) – A father who won a groundbreaking legal case on Britain’s surrogacy laws has told the BBC he hopes he will soon be given the same rights as other parents. As he is single and his baby was born to a surrogate mother, he cannot be given full parental responsibility. Without parental responsibility, he cannot legally make key decisions about his own son, he said.
