The Australian Christian Lobby reports that a discussion paper called “A Proposal for a National Model to Harmonise regulation of Surrogacy” has been released that examines the harmonisation of Australia’s surrogate parenting laws. Released this week by the Standing Committee of Attorneys General, or SCAG as it is known, the paper seems to take its lead from legislation rushed through the Victorian Parliament late last year giving lesbians access to IVF and homosexual men access to surrogacy arrangements. The deadline for submissions is April 16.
