Court to Decide Dual Moms Case
by REX WOCKNER
2003-02-01

facebook twitter google +1 reddit email


South Africa's Constitutional Court will decide Feb. 27 if a lesbian couple who are the biological mothers of a set of twins will both be legally recognized as the twins' parents.

One of the women was implanted with the other woman's eggs after they were fertilized by sperm from an anonymous donor.

The Department of Home Affairs refused to register both women as parents. The women sued and the Durban High Court ruled in their favor. Now the Constitutional Court must confirm that the High Court ruling is not unconstitutional.

The women were not named in press reports. — Rex Wockner
