Ukraine is One of the Few Low Cost Surrogacy Options as Nepal Bans Surrogacy as did India and Thailand

Nepal Bans Surrogacy, Leaving Couples With Few Low-Cost Options MAY 2, 2016 KATHMANDU, Nepal — The embryos belonged somewhere, but probably not in this empty fertility clinic in the capital of Nepal. For months, they had sat suspended in a tank of liquid nitrogen at the fertility center at the Grande City Clinic and Hospital, which until recently operated a robust surrogacy business that attracted would-be parents from around the world. But the embryos are now stuck in limbo after Nepal abruptly banned surrogacy in September. “We’ve gotten to the point now where it’s shut down and we don’t know…

Ukrainian Surrogacy Avoids US State Legal Uncertainties: One State's Battle

Democratic lawmakers in New Jersey are once again trying to enact legislation—already vetoed twice by Republican Gov. Chris Christie—that would permit legally binding gestational carrier agreements. In such a contract, a woman agrees to carry the fertilized egg of another woman through pregnancy. S-1238, like its predecessors, would require the surrogate mother to immediately forfeit all maternity rights, which the state Supreme Court deemed untenable in its watershed ruling decades ago in the Baby M case. Christie vetoed similar bills in 2015 and 2012, but sponsors and supports insist they will continue their efforts. The Senate passed the bill—sponsored by…

Surrogacy and Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian showed her decision process to use a surrogate on her E! television show. Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West are hiring a surrogate to carry and give birth to their third child, People magazine reported last week. The price tag for the pregnancy?
