South Australia pauses before making IVF and surrogacy law non-dscriminatory

Moves to remove discrimination in South Australia against LGBTI couples and singles in family formation law have taken a pause. The Weatherill government introduced the Relationships Register Bill to get rid of a whole bunch of discrimination against LGBTI couples and singles, including in IVF and surrogacy, as I posted last month.

However, it is not to be- at least for the moment. The Government successfully managed to get the Relationships Register Bill through both Houses- but there was a bit missing: all the bits related to IVF and surrogacy have been removed. It turns out, the Government decided to split the Bill- so these reforms appear to be still on track- but not quite yet. Hopefully they won’t be long.
