Surrogacy bill to ban anonymous donations

The Minister for Health has outlined his plans for new legislation on surrogacy, including a prohibition on anonymous egg and sperm donations.

Speaking on RTÉ’s Claire Byrne Live, Leo Varadkar said: "Among the proposals that I will be putting forward is that we will ban commercial surrogacy, which is surrogacy for money.

He added that the proposals "won't allow what's called 'sex selection', choosing the gender of your child, unless there's a particular reason to do so around a disorder that is inherited only by a particular gender.

"We're going to say that you have to have a genetic link to the child if you're going to use surrogacy."

Mr Varadkar said: "Obviously we're going to require consent, that anyone who is involved in this in any way has to give consent. There will be a regulator.

"And we'll also say that in most cases you can only implant one embryo, because we don't like this practice of people implanting three and four and five."
