Thailand catering to surrogacy for gay parents

Every month, hundreds of Intended parents mostly from the gay community are opting for surrogacy process in Thailand, one of the only few countries which allow gay people to do so, reportsivfconceptions.com.

With advanced medical care, low cost gay surrogacy program, steady and but improving success rate, and availability of healthy donors and surrogates, surrogacy in Thailand has gain momentum with many intended parents already going home with babies, it added.

Legally, a child born thorough surrogacy is not stateless and has Thai citizenship and can obtain a Thai passport.  In Thailand, the surrogate mother is considered the legitimate mother of the baby and her name is recorded the baby birth certificate along with that of the Intended father.

Parents can either take the baby home as a Thai citizen, after getting a Thai passport and then apply for legitimization in their country court or get an affidavit from the surrogate that she relinquishes her right to the child.

Thailand legally does not allow or prohibit surrogacy services  but the Thai Cabinet has introduced a draft  guideline to cover most aspect of surrogacy in Thailand so as to safeguard the surrogate mothers interest, to clarify the legal standing of the intended parents and to provide protection to the child born through assisted reproduction technologies.

Thailand does not bar parents  from surrogacy on the basis of their gender or sexual inclination and has become the choice destination for the intended  LGBT parents ever since India banned single parent surrogacy, reports ivfconceptions.com.

Infertility treatments including surrogacy in Thailand is affordable and up to  50 percent less than US, Australia and many European countries and have modern technologies at par with those countries.

Thailand is also one of the few countries which accept HIV positive intended parents for infertility treatments.

The Sultan of Brunei is planning to introduce Sharia law to be used to harrass gays and lesbians.
It is his right as the Head of State but I have chosen to boycott any of his worldwide hotels and I am encouraging readers to do likewise.

Not only the Dorchester Chain of Hotels but be aware he has hotels in Asia the Royal Plaza on Scotts (Singapore) and Grand Hyatt (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia).
Let's see how much his hip pocket nerve will favour stoning gays to death. Spread the message around.
Join the boycott and make sure local management know about it so it feeds back up the chain of command
