Stephen Page Advocates for Surrogacy Reform in Australia

Stephen Page Advocates for Surrogacy Reform in Australia

At Page Provan, we are pleased to see growing public discussion around surrogacy reform in Australia, and we welcome the recent coverage of this issue by ABC News. As the article notes, our Director and one of Australia’s leading surrogacy lawyer, Stephen Page, has been advocating for surrogacy reform for many years. We are proud of Stephen’s contributions to this important cause and his commitment to helping intended parents and surrogates navigate the legal and practical aspects of surrogacy in Australia.

As the article highlights, current surrogacy laws in Australia are complex and can create significant challenges for families and healthcare providers involved in surrogacy arrangements. We agree with Stephen that reform is necessary to ensure that surrogacy is conducted safely and ethically, and to provide greater support for the many families who rely on surrogacy to have children. We believe that any reform efforts should prioritize the well-being of intended parents, surrogates, and the children born through surrogacy, while also taking into account the unique legal and cultural contexts of surrogacy in Australia. We look forward to continuing to work with policymakers, healthcare providers, and families to advance surrogacy reform in Australia.
