You are invited to provide feedback on both the South Australian Law Reform Institute (SALRI) report into South Australian surrogacy laws, and the draft Surrogacy Bill 2018.

What is being decided?

The government has developed a draft Surrogacy Bill 2018, reflecting the recommendations in SALRI 's report into South Australian surrogacy laws.

We are inviting interested South Australians to provide feedback on both the SALRI report recommendations, and the draft Surrogacy Bill 2018

The report makes recommendations aimed at providing a regulatory framework that maintains the distinction between commercial and non-commercial surrogacy, and clarifying the current system to facilitate lawful domestic surrogacy arrangements.

The Bill is a work in progress, as some policy and other matters are still under development. We want to hear your opinion about the recommendations in the report and the draft Bill so far, and any further areas that should be considered for inclusion in the Bill.

Feedback is sought from families that have first-hand experience of surrogacy, those who have legal experience in the area, interested experts and members of the community.

How can your input influence the decision?

Your feedback will be used to help produce a Bill that manages surrogacy in a suitable way for the South Australian families it impacts.

We look forward to frank and open discussion from everyone who has an interest in surrogacy.

The final surrogacy bill will be introduced to State Parliament in 2019.

Get involved

Feedback is sought from families that have first-hand experience of surrogacy, those who have legal experience in the area, interested experts, and other members of the community.
