Despite the fact that altruistic surrogacy arrangements occur in Australia, the law does not adequately regulate many important aspects of such arrangements. Failure to regulate surrogacy leaves infertile couples contemplating such treatment as well as clinics dealing with them in an unsatisfactory position. This article examines the law that operates in Australian States and Territories (and the problems associated with them) as well as in New Zealand, the United Kingdom and some United States jurisdictions, considers whether the argument against surrogacy arrangements can be legitimately sustained in modern times, and examines some regulatory regimes that seem to be working satisfactorily elsewhere in the world.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
