Default French family face trial smuggling infants of surrogate

A new story entry has been added:

French family face trial smuggling infants of surrogate

According to AP, a French family urged any nation that recognizes surrogate births to grant citizenship to the girls.

"We just hope that any nation out there can give our little girls citizenship so that we can finally take them home," said the girls' French mother from the western city of Uzhorod where the family is awaiting trial after being released on bail.

The family was detained last month for trying to cross the Hungarian border with the infants hidden under a mattress in their van. The parents have said they acted out of despair after the French government refused to issue the daughters passports because it does not recognize children born to surrogate mothers. A top French court upheld that stance in a ruling Wednesday.
