France accepts EU rights ruling on surrogacy children

Sylvie and Dominique Mennesson, parents of twins born in 2000 from a surrogate mother from California, at their home in Maison Alfort, France on July 2, 2009France said Friday it would not dispute a ruling by Europe’s top rights court forcing it to legally recognise children born to surrogates, a practice that is illegal in the country. Authorities in France had refused to register three children born to surrogates in the United States as the couples’ legal offspring, a crucial move as it would secure them nationality and full inheritance rights. “It’s a decision that we will not dispute…. The government will take into account these two judgements in its domestic law,” Family Minister Laurence Rossignol told parliament. Dominique and Sylvie Mennesson and Francis and Monique Labassee turned to the ECHR in 2011 after a French court rejected their bid to have the children registered as their own.
