Shortage of surrogate mothers as more gay fathers try for babies

by Sanchez Manning, Mailonline:

A huge increase in gay couples wanting to have babies using surrogate mothers has forced a leading agency to turn away infertile heterosexual couples.

The result is that both gay and straight people wanting to start a family are now being forced to use ‘risky’ online services that do not carry out medical or background checks on surrogates, the head of COTS (Childlessness Overcome Through Surrogacy) has warned.

Kim Cotton, chairwoman of COTS, said the increased demand from the gay community coupled with strict rules that prevent agencies advertising for surrogates to come forward has led to a dire shortage.
