Most countries that have legal surrogacy specifically exclude queer people and same-sex couples. In fact, there are very few countries that have supportive surrogacy laws that also include same-sex couples. These countries include the United States, which supports commercial surrogacy for gay couples; Canada, which restricts surrogacy only to non-profit altruistic programs; Colombia, some states in Australia; and a few European countries, including the UK, Denmark, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
Today, you’ll hear from Aurelien and Nicolas, a french couple who, confronted by France's conservative surrogacy laws, decided to exhaust their last option by traveling to Las Vegas to start a family of their own through surrogacy.
