(Worthy News) – In a dramatic development for same-sex couples in Israel, the country’s top court struck down on Thursday a law that blocks single men and gay couples from using surrogacy to have children — giving the Knesset a year to pass a new law.
A summary of the decision publicized by the High Court of Justice said current surrogacy laws “disproportionately violate the right to equality and the right to parenthood of these groups and are illegal.”
The decision was unanimous by the five-judge panel, led by Chief Justice Esther Hayut and including justices Hanan Melcer, Neal Hendel, Yitzhak Amit and Uzi Fogelman. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]
