But as those affected by surrogacy know, this is far from the reality. Having advised hundreds of families created through surrogacy, I know that parents do not choose that option lightly. The vast majority have heart-wrenchingly long and painful journeys behind them (tales of miscarriages, stillbirths and gruelling years of IVF disappointments). For gay couples, surrogacy gives the hope of a much-wanted family, and arrangements are entered into with planning and care. Surrogate mothers take pride in helping to create families and, whether or not they are paid, the parents involved do not treat the enormous and life-changing gift they make lightly. Children born through surrogacy arrangements are far from commodities or accessories.


Canadians seeking Indian surrogates to carry their children.

One of the most memorable stories I did this year was on reproductive tourism — infertile Canadians who are travelling abroad for surrogates and egg donors because of the law in Canada banning payment of donor sperm or eggs or surrogacy services.

Those who counsel infertile couples told me that it is almost impossible for anyone who hasn't struggled with infertility to understand how overwhelming, and almost primal is the urge to have babies.


Let's embrace surrogacy and recognise the hope and wonderful gift that it brings, and let's celebrate and support families created in this way.

In Greg Donnelly's opinion piece in this paper on January 5, he quoted from a paper by ethicistMargaret Somerville in which she wonders whether science will someday show that having botha mother and father does matter for children's wellbeing. That's the problem with ethicists. Theystew over possibilities without talking to those affected. More useful is to consider research thathas followed up children brought up by one parent, or two parents of the same sex. For decadessuch research has consistently shown it is the processes of parenting rather than the familystructure that matters. Children in same-sex or single parent families do not demonstrate anyimportant differences in development, happiness, peer relations or adjustment.But what about the psychological wellbeing of children conceived through surrogacy?Researchers from City University London published a 2006 study in the journal HumanReproduction comparing three-year-olds conceived via surrogacy, donor insemination andnatural conception. Absence of a genetic and-or gestational link with the parents raising themwas found to have no negative influence on parent-child relationships or the psychologicalwellbeing of the children.Back in the consulting room, the reality of altruistic surrogacy "Australian style" continues tounfold for intending parents. Would all parties agree to psychological testing? Are they awarethey have no claim on the baby if their surrogate decides to keep the child? Are they and theirsurrogate prepared to undergo mandatory counselling and psychological tests? Are they preparedfor a 12-18-month work-up process, allowing for all the necessary ethics approvals?Such a tightly regulated process means most think twice before involving a female familymember, let alone a friend. In reality, Australia's improved altruistic surrogacy laws protectingthis process will assist only a handful of parents in each state each year.The vast majority will leave Australia to chase their dream of having children, risking much inthe process. Two Australian couples recently had their own embryos couriered to India inpreparation for implantation in a surrogate. On arrival, the embryos were refused entry, giventhey lacked the correct paperwork. A Byron Bay man whose Thai surrogate bore twin girls foundhimself a prisoner in his Bangkok apartment for weeks as mass demonstrations provokedacurfew, street battles and arson.A Queensland medical specialist ignored that state's laws banning commercial surrogacy andentered an overseas contract, risking a criminal charge and being struck off as a doctor.As well as such risks, intending Australian parents spend tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical, legal, travel and compensation costs in the hope of creating a family. AMelbourne childless couple I know sold their large home, moving to a smaller one with a largermortgage, to afford the escalating costs in the US.A NSW man was expecting twins by a surrogate in San Diego. He panicked when the surrogatemother looked likely to deliver at 32 weeks. The US offers no medical insurance for twins bornto non-residents and he faced a potential neonatal intensive care bill of $US140,000, doubling hiscosts.
