    Makes me sick.
    This has crossed my mind too, as well as, their reasons for pursuing surrogacy at all.

    This is totally crazy. I don't believe any side now. I bet channel nine is already planning the telemovie. So sad that innocent children are involved in all this craziness

    In going to go out on a limb and risk being shot by saying I was sus back when it was revealed the dad was 54 and married to a younger Asian lady. Not saying all similar situations are like this but I immediately thought man-power-tripping-over-the-woman syndrome. And the fact the wife defended her husbands pedophilia sort of supports this...

    Default IVF baby with Downs Syndrome left behind with Thai surrogate

Yes, change the law but allow any current surrogacy arrangements to go through at least!

    He was convicted on 22 charges with underage children- one as young as 5. Now my mind has gone where it doesn't want to. Was he having a child for the sake of easy access? Disgusting. I hope that little girl is removed from his grasp. http://www.9news.com.au/National/201...decent-assault

    I know of a couple (a work friends brother) who have been tying for 2 months to get their twins home (now they need a DNA test from Australia).

    What's going to happen to their babies?!

    I wonder if his wife knew about his past? Horrible way to find out.
