Cambodia banning surrogacy?

The Cambodian government seems intent on banning surrogacy in the country. Over the past few months there have been discussions about this issue, but no firm law has been set as of yet – only a vaguely worded ministerial directive banning surrogacy.

We have delivered frozen embryos and sperm to Cambodia on numerous occasions and know some of the people involved in the industry there. From the information we are getting directly from people on the ground, it seems that the days for surrogacy may be limited in Cambodia. The most recent  Ministry of Health directive is very short and simply states that all forms of surrogacy are prohibited.
