Everybody who knows something about American Television knows about Neil Patrick Harris, who is more famous for his fictional character; Barney Stinson. In the sitcom where he plays Barney, he is known more for his closet womanizing and Suit Up! ways.
However, the story is a bit different in real life. He is a member of the LGBT community, which stands for Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transsexual and has been known to openly voice his views. Moreover, the person is in a way married to anotherperson, and they even have a kid,born from the womb of a surrogate mother.
A Thing or Two about Surrogacy
Now Neil is definitely not the first person who has such a sweet story attached to him. There are people spread all over, who belong to such a community and have always hoped for a baby.
The problem however is; surrogacy and finding a surrogate mother is anything but easy. There is in fact a certain myth attached to the fact that women only agree to become surrogate mothers when they are hard pressed for cash, meaning that they below to a lower strata of life.
Not just the society, there are many religions as well which consider surrogacy as a sin. Some states, like New Jersey has even banned the whole thing.
Surrogacy, as you might know, is the term given to the process of giving birth to a baby who has custodial parents, different from the womb of the woman it was born from.
Usually, a financial arrangement is what takes care of the whole thing. The situation could be anything. It might be a couple who wants to have a baby and cannot because the womans body cannot take the obvious pressure or one of the partners is infertile.
It might be that asingle mother wants a kid and cannot risk it because of a certain age or a medical situation.
Surrogacy for LGBT
Just like Neil, many differently oriented couples would love to extend their family, but are unable to do so, due to obvious reasons.In such an event, surrogacy for LGBT might be the only option left.
The problem is that, along with surrogacy for LGBT, actions of differently oriented individuals have somewhat more problems with finding someone to agree to it. In most cases, there is still a taboo to such issues.
That is why; it is advised to crosscheck the law and other baggage that come with such a wish.
