PRESS RELEASE – UK Surrogacy Law Reform Debate in Parliament

UK Surrogacy Law Reform Debate

Monday, 18th July 2016

On Monday, the House of Commons will be debating reforms on the laws surrounding surrogacy in the UK. Andrew Percy MP is leading the engagement on behalf of a a cross organisation working group chaired by Surrogacy UK, and will be debating the recommendations expressed in the report ‘Surrogacy in the UK: Myth busting and reform’.

Surrogacy is an established form of modern family building and helps many people who are desperate to have a family. The current law is outdated and in need of reform, with surrogates, intended parents, and most importantly children born though surrogacy, being let down.

If you are interested in making a difference to the way we handle surrogacy in the UK, a template email has been provided below to send to your MPs to encourage them to attend the debate.

If you have any questions, please contact Natalie Smith at natalie.smith@surrogacyuk.org. More detail is also on our website: https://www.surrogacyuk.org/legal-reform-for-surrogacy.html.
