The Times has reported criticism of the Scottish Catholic Church for describing surrogacy as ‘child trafficking’
The Scottish Catholic Church has been criticised for questioning ‘whether surrogacy is any better than child trafficking’ in its response to the Law Commission’s surrogacy reform project. The piece quotes a comment from our founder Natalie Gamble:
Natalie Gamble, a leading fertility lawyer who has two donor-conceived children and has been an egg donor, said: “What the Catholic Church is imagining just shows that they are not really familiar with how surrogacy works.
“Surrogacy is so far from any kind of concept of human trafficking and these children are not commodities, they’re children who are desperately wanted, waited for, for years and years and they are so cherished and so loved.”
