Currently all commerical surrogacy in Australia is illegal, only altruistic surrogacy is permitted. The intended parents are allowed to pay expenses - but that is it.
As far as overseas commercial surrogacy - the laws for each state are different. some states allow it and others do not.
Whatever - it is clear the current mumbo-jumbo mix is not really appropriate.
So - what do YOU think we should do? Should we allow commercial surrogacy?
Should intended parents be allowed to pay the person who is giving them the ultimate gift?
Or does this only encourage the activity of people in extreme hardship 'selling' their womb ... possibly under duress from family or others.
