The Vicar-General of the Catholic Diocese, Father Michael Yeung, has called commercial surrogacy 'unethical'. Father Yeung said the law should be used in Hong Kong to stop such methods of having children.

His comments come after it was revealed that Peter Lee - the son of Henderson Land chairman Lee Shau-kee - is being investigated by the police after fathering triplets through surrogacy - reportedly by a woman in the United States. The Health Secretary, York Chow, told Legco yesterday that the case had been referred to the police because commercial surrogacy is illegal in Hong Kong, even if it is carried out elsewhere.
