A 29-year-old mother has spoken candidly about her gracious decision to help couples struggling to conceive by donating her eggs.

Cassie Lake, from Tinonee on the Mid North Coast of NSW, wanted to share the joys of parenthood after having a family of her own.

Julie Bindel, who writes for the Guardian, and New Statesman has hit out at gay men who use surrogacy to have their own, biological child. The columnist was commenting on an April Fool’s Joke about surrogacy by German LGBT+ website Queer.de.

The article, which has been apologised for, was a competition to give away an egg donation and to pay for the services of a surrogate mother in Bangkok worth €36,000.

Bindel has often spoken out about gay men using surrogate mothers in order to have children. In her latest social media outburst, she appeared to call gay men “Narcissistic, rich, racist, entitled pricks”.
