Former Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon slammed the government's passage earlier today of the surrogacy bil, which denies gay couples state funding for pregnancy via surrogacy, in a statement to the media Wednesday.

"A strong society does not allow discrimination and alienation, a strong society accepts and honors its sons and daughters, and their way of life and preferences," Ya'alon said. "The ongoing damage to the LGBT community is the result of a lack of leadership!"

"I respect and embrace you, members of the community, I am proud to support the basic rights of every person to be a parent in the State of Israel," he said.
