Submission - Improving Arrangements for Surrogacy Bill

Wednesday, July 27, 2022

Submissions

Family Planning welcomes the review of surrogacy law in New Zealand. There is ample evidence from individuals using surrogacy, and legal experts, that the current law is not fit for purpose.

Overall, Family Planning supports reforming surrogacy laws to make them fit for purpose. We support the Law Commission recommendations for principles underpinning surrogacy law, particularly that “Surrogacy law should support surrogates and intended parents to enter surrogacy arrangements that protect and promote their health, safety, dignity and human rights.” We note that surrogates have unique rights related to bodily autonomy that must be protected and, given most surrogates are women, the impact of gender discrimination must also be a consideration.
