Tasmanian Surrogacy

The Tasmanian Surrogacy Bill has stalled in Parliament. The Australian Christian Lobby is urging upperhouse members to reject the bill. ACL Tasmanian director Mark Brown said that since the draft bill was introduced, it had fundamentally ignored the ethical and moral implications of legalising surrogacy.

For ACL report click here.

The Tasmanian Legislative Council Committee has recommended on Dec 1 that the Surrogacy Bill 2011 be amended to “better protect the interest of the child” by making written surrogacy arrangements mandatory and including a medical and social need test. The Tasmanian Bill allows for homosexual partners (unlike in WA) to have a surrogant child and the committee did not recommend changing this in line with WA’s laws. In her submission to the inquiry the Tasmanian Commissioner for Children Aileen Ashford urged the need to consider the interest of the child. She did not recommend that homosexual couples should be excluded from receiving surrogant children. View the press release.
