Updating/commentary on surrogacy

Corey commented today on my guide to commercial surrogacy state by state:

Steven, I wondered if
you could:

a) update this page’s information (in light of the NSW changes)

b) provide comment regarding Victoria’s laws between 1995 – 2008 where the
overseas surrogacy ban was in force, but it seems has never been enforced
(despite a number of high profile couples promoting their families)

c) provide commentary on exactly what impact these laws have (eg can parents
who used overseas surrogacy arrangements still get a parenting order)

d) provide suggestions on what is the best way forward in regards to
legislative reform in this area with the best interests of the child being kept
in mind.

Thank you Corey: another job to do!
