TEMPLATE TO HELP YOU WRITE TO YOUR MP:
Dear [insert MP’s name],
As my local MP, I am contacting you to ask you to: a) meet with me to discuss surrogacy and the need for law reform; b) attend a meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Surrogacy on 25th April; and c) join the APPG on surrogacy.
I understand the demands on a MP’s time; however, this issue is very important to me and I would be extremely grateful for your support so that you can present my experience and hopes for reform.
[Constituents can add their personal stories here – why is surrogacy important to you and why do you think the law should be changed. What changes would you like to see.]
The APPG aims to fully review our surrogacy laws, facilitate further research into how it is conducted, bring the law into line with modern social realities and encourage those who need to undertake surrogacy to do so in the UK. Please read this Briefing Document that is helpful in summarising this issue.
The drop-in event will be held on 25th April between 10.30am and 11.30am. If you would like to learn more about this issue or confirm your attendance at the event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Your support would be very much appreciated.
Thank you for taking the time to read this email.
