      Surrogate Parenthood for Singles, Same-Sex Couples

      The Health Ministry issued, Thursday, a memorandum of a law to expand the use of surrogate mothers to provide children for single people and same-sex couples. The bill would regulate surrogacy arrangements abroad, as well as in Israel, in matters over which the ministry has purview.

      The proposal will be turned over to the Ministerial Committee on Legislation, which is expected to deal with it in the coming weeks.
