Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceProfessional


[Extract] Changing notions of the understanding of "family" in Western culture have resulted in part from the increasing availability of assisted reproductive technologies.

Alongside technological innovation such as IVF, surrogacy has been increasing in visibility. Most Australian jurisdictions permit only altruistic surrogacy – it is unlawful to pay women to carry a baby other than to reimburse them for reasonable expenses. Consequently, many intending parents are looking overseas to engage women to have their babies.
