Knesset rejects bill to broaden surrogacy access


A bill allowing single women to access surrogacy legally within Israel was passed on 18 July by the Knesset, but an amendment put forward at that time by MK Amir Ohana from the Prime Minister's Likud party to allow single men the same access was rejected.

Gay men may seek surrogacy outside Israel, but the cost is prohibitive for many families. The bill also explained that because 'surrogacy outside of Israel has not yet been regulated by Israeli legislation, it raises many legal and moral difficulties, and the State of Israel is required to retroactively recognise and grant the child Israeli citizenship.'
