Natalie and Helen discussed the surrogacy law reform proposals in BioNews

The Law Commissions of England and Wales and Scotland have published their final recommendations for UK surrogacy law reform on 29 March 2023, suggesting new measures that they say will modernise surrogacy laws in the UK to make the process for intended parents more straightforward while attempting to safeguard the interests of the surrogate and the child.

Natalie and Helen discuss how these proposals are a positive step forward in some aspects, but overall represent a missed opportunity to make real change and achieve the modernisation the UK needs. Together, they analyse how the Law Commission’s proposals impact is in practice likely to be modest, benefitting only a small proportion of the surrogacy children being born and make little difference to the challenges faced by UK intended parents.
