    I've also heard that Thai authorities are considering charging the surrogate mum with human trafficking offences: how can it be illegal in Thailand when it is so widespread??

    I dunno. I don't think it's legal for western businessmen to use underage ladyboy prostitutes either - something Thailand is "known" for. Things happen in some countries where the authorities struggle to (or unwilling to, where it will negatively impact on their economy) enforce laws. Remember, the government has just been overturned, I'd assume people were not happy with the way the country was being run.

    The new laws in Thailand were announced this week.

    I'm not sure what it would mean for those who have a contract with one of the clinics and, for example a surrogate is already pregnant with their baby?


    Many Australians have flocked to Thailand over the years because the rules were far less strict. However, the rules have changed this week.

    After Thailand’s military government reviewed 12 Thai IVF clinics involved in surrogacy cases they have announced new laws.

    Surrogacy is now only recognised in Thailand if:
    • The intended parents are a heterosexual married couple who are medically infertile.
    • The surrogacy is altruistic.
    • The surrogate is a blood relative.
    Surrogacy in Thailand is illegal if:
    • The intended parent or parents are unmarried under Thai law (i.e. de facto couples, same sex couples and singles are excluded).
    • Any money is paid to the surrogate.
    • The removal of the child from Thailand without permission of Thai authorities will breach Thailand's human trafficking laws.
    These new laws will now exclude almost every Australian from pursuing surrogacy in Thailand.

    Now that the whole conviction has come out about the father, you kind of wonder if there were 'other' reasons for them only taking the little girl, as horrific as that sounds.

    I recall the Surrogate saying that the father was only interested in the little girl and didn't even look at the little boy. That was before the news broke of him being a filthy pedophile.

    Makes me sick.
