biological parents, and, in cases of surrogacy, a gestational mother.
which the gestational mother must also be the intended mother--is far
It bears more similarity to a mix-up at the time of a hospital's discharge of two newborn infants, which should simply be corrected at once, than to one where a gestational mother has arguably the same rights to claim parentage as the genetic mother.
The fetus is with the gestational mother every minute of every day, whatever she is doing, for nine months.
105 The gestational mother was pregnant with twins, (106) the result of the implantation of embryos created by the in vitro fertilization of eggs harvested from Marla Culliton with sperm provided by Steven Culliton.
113) Remarkably, the court found that Cullitons, a married couple, had conceived the twins, who were therefore children of the marriage, and not of the gestational mother.
This case is really a custody dispute in which the gestational mother has been able to use loopholes because they are same-gender parents.
As the genetic and gestational mothers, both women have an equally valid basis to establish maternity under the UPA.
29) The Israeli law is designed to facilitate and not impede these agreements by legalizing the relationship of the genetic mother and her genetic child, and minimizing the rights of the gestational mother
When the genetic mother and gestational mother
are separated, she who intended to bring the child into the world would be considered the mother.
As a case in point, the Wayne County Circuit Court in Michigan issued an interim order declaring a gamete donor couple to be the biological parents of a fetus being carried to term by a woman hired to be the gestational mother
If nature is to guide this decision, the activities of the gestational mother
were much more "natural" than those of the genetic mother and father.
