Australian Prime Minister has described the circumstances around a Down Syndrome baby who was abandoned with his surrogate mother in Thailand as an "absolutely tragic human situation".
It's an absolutely tragic human situation. I don't think there would be anyone in the country who wouldn't be really cut up about what's happening here. There are no easy answers when it comes to government, to institutional arrangements. The one shining light to come from this most unfortunate, deeply regrettable situation is there appears to have been an absolute outpouring of generosity towards baby Gammy and his mother. That's the one thing I would like to say redeems this otherwise terribly unfortunate situation.
