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.

The Premier’s approach is consistent with an all party committee, chaired by former Attorney-General Linda Lavarch, which recommended that altruistic surrogacy in Queensland be permitted..

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.
