Is it the end of surrogacy in Nepal?

October 15, 2015

In September a few private Nepalese lawyers appealed to the high court in Nepal against the Nepalese Government in respect to the Cabinets’ decision that allows for Surrogacy to take place in Nepal. Gal Sava, ‘Viva Family’ Founder & CEO, sheds light about the situation in Nepal, tells us what to expect and reveals what are relevant destinations in the case that Nepal bans surrogacy. What happened in Nepal? An appeal has been made against the fact that surrogacy takes place and is not instituted in the law (although there is no law prohibiting it). The court of Justice asked the State of Nepal to address questions such as – what are the rights of the surrogate mother, what are the child’s rights etc. As a result, the Health Services provided its response. Based on the reply, the court in Nepal needs to decide whether it allows to carry out surrogacy or to freeze the process until a procedure is constituted. At the moment it is not clear when and if this matter will be settled, and even if it is settled, it seems that singles and same sex couples won’t be able to go through the surrogacy process in Nepal. There are a few possible scenarios: Optimistic scenario – the position of the state will be accepted and surrogacy will become legal and constituted in the law. Pessimistic scenario – the position of the state will be reject

As many of you already know, in the past few weeks it has not been clear whether Nepal will continue to be a destination where surrogacy can take place or not. At the moment, although no final decision has been announced, it seems that Nepal will be banned as a destination where singles or same sex couples will be able to carry out surrogacy process. This is unfortunate as it was most likely a preferred destination for many couples going through surrogacy.

It’s summer time. While the biggest worry for some of us is where to spend the next vacation, or to limit those ice cream dosages so that the bathing suit will stay in tact, I would like to share with you the concern of my very proud, gay-dads-to-be friends, who have began the journey of gay surrogacy. They are a couple just like every other couple you run into. Mid thirties, Dave is a lawyer, and Jonathan is a high school teacher. They met, fell in love, decided they wanted to live happily ever after, did the thing all couples do – got married, and lived their life just like everyone else. Some days super happy, other days grumpy. It’s called life. At some point they decided it was time to turn from a couple to a couple with a baby. A family. Sure, not being able to physically get pregnant was an obstacle, but they knew they had options. At the end of the day, in the year 2015, if you can fly to outer space, find a friend that went to primary school with you in the other side of the world using the tip of your finger, in a world where everything is possible, surely two men can have a baby. It’s called gay surrogacy. Unfortunately, gay surrogacy is not legal everywhere in the world. Gay surrogacy is legal mainly in Nepal, Mexico and the US. My friends chose to go with the option of gay surrogacy in Mexico. They started the process – genetic tests, choosing an egg donor, su

I always knew I wanted to have a family. I wasn’t sure how many children I would have, who I would marry, where we will live. However, I knew that I would have a family. My own family.

Unlike others who choose to have a family, for me it was challenging. You see, since childhood, I have always known that I was gay. I knew that before I knew what was the meaning of it. What my life would look like. It was who I was, and I never tried to change it or ignore it. I accepted it since the day I realized that’s who I am.
The fact that I was gay, and the fact that I was determined to have a family, these 2 facts found it difficult to co exist. I wasn’t sure how it would work, but I wasn’t going to give up on my dream.
Like many other people, I went to school, graduated, travelled the world, fell in and out of love, experienced, learned. Lived. At some point I was in a relationship and felt that I was ready to tie the knot. Just like anyone else. I was married for a couple of years, and my husband and I started talking about having kids. Just like anyone else. As opposed to the days when I was growing up, it seemed like today we actually have options to live the dream. To become a family. To bring our own kids into this world and raise them as one family. The option, by the way, is called gay surrogacy. How simple. How complex. I was
