Law change for single parents of surrogate-born children

The government has proposed a change to UK fertility law to allow single parents who have had a child through a surrogate to become full legal parents. The move was welcomed by law groups who said it will end the “legal limbo” faced by children born this way. Separately, the British Fertility Society has called for the law to be changed to avoid thousands of women having their eggs needlessly destroyed. Fertility doctors say the 10-year limit on storing eggs for women wishing to preserve their fertility does not take into account new technology.
