Dr. Michael Doyle and several of his staff hosted a reunion party for dozens of gay headed families CT Fertility helped create in New York City alone. Of the several hundred gay-headed families CT Fertility helped create, over a hundred reside in the NYC region. At the event Dr. Doyle also announced a major new donation to benefit Family Equality Council, America’s foremost advocate for the one million LGBT parents raising children in the United States. Mark Corpron, a NY gay dad and a board member of Family Equality Council thanked CT Fertility on behalf of his organization for “the increasing partnership and support by CT Fertility, an organization that helped create so many of the families we represent.” In April 2011 CT Fertility was also a major sponsor of Night at the Pier, Family Equality Council’s annual fundraiser. The NY event was co-sponsored by Circle Surrogacy.
Surrogacy in France is illegal and still controversial, yet an increasing number of French people who cannot have children on their own are turning to various surrogacy and egg donation arrangements abroad. Attempts to change the law are hotly debated and even presidential candidates are taking sides. American experts, a surrogate mother, French parents and academics recently weighed in on the topic that divides France. Instead of pros or cons, they concentrated on providing guidelines on how surrogacy can be carried out ethically. The ethical principles Dr. Doyle (pic) outlined include fully informing and protecting surrogates and donors from medical and psychological risks, treating them with dignity and respect, and considering the long term well being of all involved, including the surrogates’ families, and the children they help create.
