Rainbow Fertility congratulates the South Australian Government on its recent approval of Bills allowing all LGBTI people access to reproductive treatment in South Australia.
Following the passing of The Statutes Amendment (Surrogacy Eligibility) Bill in South Australia, a person will be able to access reproductive treatment if they are unlikely to become pregnant other than through use of assisted reproductive technology.
The new Bill also amends the Family Relationships Act 1975 to extend access to lawful surrogacy agreements to non-heterosexual couples.
Premier Jay Weatherill said the State Government is committed to creating a more inclusive and tolerant South Australia.
“The removal of these historical legal barriers will help ensure that gender identities are respected, recognised, promoted and protected,” Premier Weatherill said.
At Rainbow Fertility we have always believed in equal treatment for people and providing access to the same opportunities. In essence, we simply want to reflect the reality of the world we live in.
We don’t seek to define how a family should be, Rainbow Fertility is focused on helping people create one of their own, if that is what they desire.
Our service can provide advice on family options for lesbian, gay men, bisexuals, transgender, and intersex people.
Two amendments to the Bill were recommended by the Legislative Council and will be sent to the Lower House for approval next year when Parliament resumes.
