NGA on BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour reflecting on 30 years of UK surrogacy

January 2, 2015

NGA has been interviewed by today’s BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour, reflecting on 30 years since the birth of baby Cotton, the UK’s first well-known surrogacy baby.  The media storm around the 1985 case involving Kim Cotton led to the rushing through Parliament of the Surrogacy Arrangements Act 1985, legislation which sought to put a lid on the development of surrogacy in the UK. It hasn’t worked, and Natalie talks to Woman’s Hour about the growth of UK surrogacy – and about how many of the fears about surrogacy in the 1980s have not been borne out in practice.
