“Children miss out on a mother or father because of tragedy or desertion. However, surrogacy always means that a child misses out on either the love of a father or a mother,” Mr Flynn said.
“Nature dictates that men and women are required to produce a child. Men and women then go on to provide unique, complementary roles, both of which are important in the development of children.
“Children are best served when they are raised by their mother and a father, wherever possible.”
