High Court to rule on surrogacy case
on 05/03/2013 07:31:31
Mr Justice Henry Abbott will deliver judgment on whether or not a genetic mother of twins born to a surrogate can be named on their birth certificates.
The genetic parents of the children took the case after the Chief Registrar refused a request for the genetic mother to be recorded on the birth certificates.
The State is opposing the application on the basis that only the birth mother can be viewed as the legal mother.
