How many Australians undertake surrogacy in Thailand?
The new Australians
Citizenship applications lodged on behalf of minors have climbed in key countries offering surrogacy. (Dates shown by financial year.)
Given the similar number in India, this makes Australians the highest per capita users of commercial international surrogacy arrangements of any country in the world.
As I have said elsewhere, trying to prohibit Australians undertaking surrogacy overseas will not work. It is akin to King Canute holding back the tide. A much, much better outcome is to prevent the exploitation of surrogates (and children, and intended parents) overseas, by making commercial surrogacy available here- properly regulated by clear, sensible and transparent rules.
