I’ve started the petition “Government of India (Home Affairs & FRRO): Resume IVF/surrogacy for singles, gays, and same sex couples.” and need your help to get it off the ground.
Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now? Here’s the link:
Here’s why it’s important:
I went through a recognized in vitro fertilization (IVF) surrogacy program in India. With the help of the Medical Team, an egg donor mother, and surrogate mother in India, I am the proud biological father of twins Lucila and Angelo and am raising my twins here in the US. However, when I contacted the IVF surrogacy program in India regarding my remaining embryos and my desire to have more children, I was informed of the India Government’s new “medical visa” which must be obtained for IVF surrogacy in India and one of the new conditions is the foreign man and woman must be married for at least two years, and same sex marriages are not accepted. This new requirement for IVF surrogacy in India discriminates against single women straight and gay, and single men straight and gay, and same sex couples. Please sign my petition to stop this discrimination against single women straight and gay, and single men straight and gay, and same sex couples from accessing affordable in vitro fertilization treatment and surrogacy in India.
