Assisted Reproductive Technology and Legal Parentage

New changes in the Family Law Act

Can a child have more than 2 legal parents? What happens if a man donates his sperm to a lesbian couple so that they can conceive a child – is he a legal parent? What happens when an infertile opposite sex couple use the services of a surrogate to have an embryo from their own genetic material implanted and carried to term by the surrogate, is the surrogate the birth mother?
Interested?? Curious??
