Surrogacy

A recent House of Representatives inquiry into the regulatory and legislative aspects of international and domestic surrogacy arrangements recommended that the practice of commercial surrogacy remain prohibited in Australia. This recommendation was informed by the view that, even with the best of regulatory intentions, there is still significant potential for the exploitation of women and children.
