WA to approve surrogacy

Western Australia's Upper House has passed a Bill allowing surrogacy, for medically infertile women or those deemed incapable of full-term pregnancies, joining NSW and the ACT as the only States allowing surrogacy.

Western Australian Attorney-General Jim McGinty is reported as saying that passage through the Lower House, due on August 12, is a formality.

The Bill requires the surrogate mother to be over 25 and already have a child of her own.
