The Mexican State of Tabasco is currently the only state in the country to authorise non-commercial surrogacy. Consequently, it has attracted numerous strangers and gay couples who want to become parents. In surrogacy terms, Mexico is thus an alternative to the USA where prices can rise to $150,000 and more. However, legislation is in the pipe line. In fact, on Monday, the State voted to restrict surrogacy access to heterosexual Mexican couples only. From now on, a couple must comprise a mother and a father between 25 and 40 years of age. The intended mother must present a medical certificate confirming that she cannot have children.
