New age family forms

I am currently in a male same sex relationship and am starting to look into the possibility of one day being able to have my own biological child with my partner. I dream of one day

having our own biological child shared with the person I love and will spend the rest of my life with. I know currently in Australia it is not legal or at all possible for this to occur but in India it may well be possible. The process they are

beginning to use involves taking a skin cell from one of us and then differentiating one of these into an artficial egg produced from an embyonic stem cell to move my partners chromosmones. From this we take the

other persons sperm and fertilise it and then inplant into a surrogate mother. This allows two females to have female children only and two males, male only, ect which is how I beleive it should be.

We have been together for 3 years and recently we decided we may consider having our own child after 10 years. We might be able to travel to India for the procedure and then bring it back to Australia.

I know many may suggest adoption but we are both quite the selfish type and have a strong preference for our own biological child. Also adoption agencies are very reluctant to give to same sex and single parents alike.

I am hoping in 7 years time this process may be widley available in India at-least.

For us in Australia the cost in India would not be to significant due to exchange rates.

If we bring a child back to Australia we would want to register both of ourselves as legal parents on its Australian birth certficiate. My lifelong goal is simply to demonstrate to the world that parent gender is simply irrelevant to child

rearing and children are best placed shared in the hands of two independant parents of any gender.

The Director of the SPCA would not agree with you and as my interest is only the legal issues I can tell you that there are many legal issues to overcome in what you are trying to do. In Australia you can certainly note both same sex parents on the Birth certificate by filling out the correct form. As far as the following goes it is the stuff of science fiction and probably on board the SS Enterprise and definitely your view. The process they are beginning to use involves taking a skin cell from one of us and then differentiating one of these into an artficial egg produced from an embyonic stem cell to move my partners chromosmones. From this we take the other persons sperm and fertilise it and then inplant into a surrogate mother. This allows two females to have female children only and two males, male only, ect which is how I beleive it should be.

Why don't you get your other girlfriend to carry it for you?

You crack me up.

Have a look at the following- This is the basic idea
of how we can make viable eggs from male tissue.


'It is possible that we could use this technology to make eggs from stem cells created from a man's skin cells,' said Moore. 'Thus technology could help gay men have babies, though obviously a fertilised egg created this way would have to be carried to term by a woman. It would have the genetic make-up of its two male "parents".
