Queensland Surrogacy Inquiry: Update

The Queensland Inquiry into Altruistic Surrogacy is currently underway, with evidence being given today.

The Inquiry is considering whether Queensland should continue to ban (and make an offence out of) non-commercial surrogacy. Queensland is the only State to do so.

Several States are reviewing surrogacy laws, following a
push by former Commonwealth Attorney-General Phillip Ruddock to have nationally consistent surrogacy laws.

The most famous victims of the inconsistent laws are Senator Stephen Conroy and his wife who were forced to travel from Victoria (where surrogacy is banned) to New South Wales to have a baby.
