Powell, Gary
1 Articles at Lifeissues.net

Gary Powell is a UK conservative political activist and longstanding advocate for gay and lesbian equality. For several years he ran a national campaign to improve public administration complaints procedures. Gary was tutored in Philosophy by the Rt Hon Baroness Mary Warnock, a specialist in reproductive ethics whose inquiry led to the UK Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990. He is an original signatory of the Stop Surrogacy Now Statement, and argues for a ban on all forms of surrogacy.

As gay people, we cannot insist on the right to carry out practices that harm the rights of others. Rather than being an LGBT rights issue, surrogacy is a women's rights issue and a children's rights issue; and like the sale of human organs, it is not an activity that should be promoted or indeed permitted.
