Assisted Reproductive Technology

21 March 2016

In Parliament I welcomed changes to the Assisted Reproductive Technology Act which will ensure lesbian couples can use the same donor even if he has already donated to five women. In 2010 a ‘five women limit’ was introduced to reduce chances of individuals conceived with the same donor unknowingly becoming romantically involved. This was never a risk for lesbian couples whose children are raised as siblings and a ‘five family limit’ will be used. The bill awaits debate in the upper House. My speech  HERE.
