German Website Gives Away Thai Surrogate For April Fools

A German LGBT website has received mixed criticism over an April Fools joke were a gay couple could enter a competition to win a Thai surrogate mother and an egg donation worth €36,000.

The translated article reads:

“For many gay couples, surrogacy is the ultimate hope for the long-cherished dream of starting a family. With “Baby Equality” there is now a new agency in Bangkok, which helps to realize the desire for children – as part of two dream vacations in Thailand, once in the fertilization and once in the collection of the baby.

“The fertilization of the egg donation with the sperm of one of the fathers takes place in a renowned private clinic in Bangkok. During pregnancy, of course, the health of the surrogate mother is regularly checked. Through a webcam on the farm of Nuttanun’s parents, the gay couple can even share their lives from Germany.

“After the birth of the child, the name of a parent is entered in the Thai birth certificate. The parents need this document in translated and certified form to apply for a German child passport in Bangkok.”

The majority of readers on the news website’s social media pages have called the competition tasteless and racist.
