Queensland to Legalise Altruistic Surrogacy
Fresh from her re-election, Queensland Premier Anna Bligh has announced that Queensland will legalise altruistic surrogacy by the end of this year.
She also indicated that Labor MP’s will not have the choice of a conscience vote: they will have to toe the party line, which is to allow this change through.
Queensland currently has the most regressive laws in the country. All surrogacy is banned. Any Queenslander entering into a surrogacy arrangement, whether in Queensland or anywhere else int he world, commits an offence in Queensland.
