We'd like your help with an investigation into the progress of legislation dealing with donor-assisted reproduction and surrogacy. Many couples with donor-conceived children or those relying on surrogates to give birth have been left in limbo as, under existing provisions, they often have no legal status as their child’s parents.

We also want to dig into who has been trying to exert influence over the process, and whether this has had an impact on the introduction of new regulations.

This project is almost 70% funded so it would be great if you could spread the word about this investigation proposal to try to get it over the line. You can find out more about the project and support it here: https://www.noteworthy.ie/proposal/p...and-30-Jun2019

We're an investigative platform called Noteworthy which was set up by TheJournal.ie. The idea is that we crowdsource ideas for stories that are not currently being covered by the media, and crowdfund in order to carry them out.

Let us know your ideas below or email information@noteworthy.ie - Also if you could share this, that would be brilliant.
