Why do foreigners have difficulties with carrying their surrogate children out of Ukraine? Commentaries and advice of the lawyers of the Ukraine Foundation of the companies providing organizational and legal support of ART programs regarding the recent "surrogate scandals"
In Ukraine during the year there've been several shocking scandals caused by the realization of the reproduction programs via surrogacy by the citizens of some countries in West Europe. A special attention is attracted to the French couple case that has been desperately trying to cross the Ukraine-Hungarian frontier. The infant Gemini girls became victims of the situation and can't return to their home land because of the legal arguments and the indifference to human beings. Can the difficulties that prevent the foreign parents from going away with their children born via surrogacy be regarded as regularity or a sad occasion? Shall we expect any similar dramatic problem in the future and how to avoid it? Who is to blame in the problem of these children? Some leading and professional lawyers of the Ukraine Foundation of the companies providing organizational and legal support of ART programs are to give answers to these questions. The main difficulties in the field of surrogacy will be thoroughly discussed by the professionals during the conference. They will also give some recommendations to the French couple and to the other foreigners who can't return to their birth land after the realization of the surrogacy program in Ukraine. In the course of the event the French couple that at the moment is in the very center of the "surrogate scandal" is planning to appeal to the public opinion. The conference organized by the Ukraine information agency Unian (http://unian.net) is dedicated to these and many other problems.
