Israeli court rules same-sex couples must be eligible for surrogacy within 6 months

Israel’s High Court of Justice ruled on Sunday that the state must allow same-sex couples and single men to become parents through surrogacy, after the government said last week that passing a law to this effect was politically “unfeasible.”

The court also said that the state must make the requirements for same-sex couples and single men to become parents as those set for women.

The panel of justices, headed by Supreme Court President Esther Hayut, said that restrictions barring same-sex male couples and single men from surrogacy must be nullified within six months.

“As it has been determined that the arrangement is unconstitutional,” the court said of the current rules limiting surrogacy, “‘a lack of political feasibility’ cannot justify the connotation of severe harm to basic rights.”
