In many countries where legislation allows surrogacy, access to it is restricted for same-sex couples and single people. In today’s world, where thousands of happy same-sex families are created, and where many people consciously choose life without a partner, this situation can be considered discrimination against a huge number of people. One can hope and predict that circumstances will change in the near future.
This issue is being considered by the International Committee on Monitoring of Assistive Reproductive Technologies (ICMART). It is planning to change the very definition of infertility, which is recorded in the glossary of this respected worldwide organization. Single people and same-sex couples will be included in the definition of infertility. The World Health Organization supports the ICMART initiative. Therefore, positive changes for a large number of people are very close.
