Surrogacy in Thailand. We aren’t “The wombs of the world”

For a long period of time hundreds of infertile couples found their surrogacy happiness in Thailand. But several world-scandal surrogacy journeys made the government of the country review the legal aspects of surrogacy in Thailand which has resulted in ban of the commercial surrogacy for foreigners.

As Wanlop Tangkananurak (a member of National Legislative Assemble) told, commercial surrogacy has caused too much long-termed international problems. That’s why, banning surrogacy for foreigners is aimed to avoid being a hub and avoid such conflicts in future.

Australian couple who abandoned their Down’s syndrome twin boy with their surrogate and Japanese man who fathered at least 16 babies via surrogacy in Thailand provoked Thai parliament to vote 160 to 2 to pass the law and in such a way protect rights of the nation.

According to the new law, only Thai couples who are married at least 3 years and can prove their and their relatives impossibility to carry a child are allowed to search for a surrogate.

At the same  time, fertility specialists risk to lose their medical license performing surrogacy programs for pay. Fine of 200,000 baht ($6,100) and jail term of 10 years are viewed as enough punishment for all the participants of the commercial surrogacy.

Viewing commercial surrogacy in Thailand illegal, Thai parliament hopes to stop “baby factory” in their country.
