Surrogacy laws could be reformed to remove automatic rights from birth parents, under plans being examined by the Government.
Law Commission recommendations to reform surrogacy law have received Government backing and will be developed to make the rules “fit for the modern world”.
A three-year project will examine the current rules which give a woman and her husband automatic parentage over any child she gives birth to, even if the child is not biologically theirs.
It will “consider the legal parentage of children born via surrogacy, and the regulation of surrogacy more widely,” the Law Commission said.
