Surrogacy arrangements are complex and can involve a range of social, emotional, medical, financial and legal issues. Within Australia, only altruistic surrogacy is allowed, however Australians are increasingly accessing compensated surrogacy arrangements overseas in places such as Thailand, India and the US. State-based laws in Australia prohibiting commercial surrogacy do not appear to deter most people from the considerable expense and risk incurred in accessing it internationally. This book explains altruistic surrogacy and the law in Australia, and explores a range of concerns raised in response to the growing international commercial surrogacy industry. Should commercial surrogacy be legalised, and in the process better regulated? What are the rights of the surrogate mother and the child?
