    This is why it should be illegal in all Australian states/territories (not just 3) to pay an overseas surrogate to carry a child. The laws (in the 3 states) are there for a reason.

    There's no point in just making it illegal, we need better regulations in all states and territories (there are no restrictions at all in NT) at the moment only 1 state requires any police checks at all. I do not believe we need to prevent anyone with a criminal history from obtaining reproductive assistance but we do need to prevent instances like this and others in the past.

    That's your opinion and that's fine but for me personally I was faced with the possibility of having a child with Down's syndrome and it was the most difficult decision of our lives. Our decision to terminate if the baby did have DS was based on a few factors, we didn't just make that decision for our sake! We didn't think having a child that would take up so much of our time would be fair on DS, we were worried about the financial impact also and to us we didn't feel it would be fair on him to struggle and possibly not have quality of life depending on the severity. I'm sure it isn't a decision any parent would make lightly.

    The bit I find sad for our country is that their dog has been taken but allowed to have a child

    Yes. And this man would not be able to work with children - a law that's been put in place to protect children like our own, yet he's allowed to have a child living in his home. Makes me so sad.
