Knesset Commitee Supports Gay Parenting

A landmark bill to permit gay couples as well as single men and women in Israel to obtain surrogacy services overcame a major hurdle Sunday when it was approved by the cabinet, overturning an appeal by Housing Minister Uri Ariel. The legislation is set to be presented for a Knesset vote at a later date, and will likely pass into law.

The proposed legislation would grant the same benefits afforded to heterosexual couples in Israel, and further extend surrogacy rights, allowing married women to serve as surrogate mothers.
