Israeli homosexual men hire Thai women as surrogate mothers

At least nine babies have been born from Thai surrogate mothers hired by Israeli gay couples, Consular Department Director General Thongchai Chasawat confirmed Thursday.

Thai Rath Online quoted Thongchai as saying that the babies have been natural-born Thai citizens and problems occurred when their fathers wanted to take them back to Israel to give them Israeli citizenship.

The practices were learned by the Foreign Ministry when the Israeli men attempted to get travelling documents for the babies by seeking translations and endorsement of the travelling documents.
