Court recognises gays as dads of 2 surrogate-born kids

Children born in United States

A Trento court has recognized, for the first time in Italy, that both members of a gay couple can be considered the fathers of children born abroad via a surrogate mother, the www.articolo29.it website reported Tuesday. The case regards a couple who had two children born via surrogate maternity in the United States. The site quoted the sentence as recognizing "the foreign provision establishing the existence of a parental link between the two minors... and their non-genetic father" as well as their genetic father.
