ABC Online – “Qld to include same-sex couples in surrogacy law changes” by Chris O’Brien

 

Everyone ... should be afforded the privileges of parenthood: Bligh

Everyone … should be afforded the privileges of parenthood: Bligh (Reuters: Robert Galbraith)

The Queensland Government says same-sex couples will be included in changes to the state’s surrogacy laws.

Premier Anna Bligh has previously announced that altruistic surrogacy will be decriminalised, although commercial surrogacy will remain illegal.

Ms Bligh has told Parliament the new laws will be in place by the end of the year.

"I can advise the House that same-sex parents will be included among those who will be affected by the decriminalisation of surrogacy, because everyone – regardless of their sexual status or their gender – should be afforded the privileges of parenthood," she said.
