Restore Altruistic Surrogacy Laws and Civil Unions for same-sex couples.

Marriage and starting a family is a human right between any two consenting adults that love each other - regardless of gender or sexual orientation. LOVE is LOVE - it has no barriers.

When Campbell Newman and the LNP were elected in March, the Premier dismissed suggestions of change to the Civil Union and Surrogacy laws once elected.
Now in a midnight move, passed at 12.25am, the Government has made big changes to civil partnerships laws, removed state-sanctioned ceremonies
and renamed the scheme as a relationship register. They have also removed rights for same-sex couples, single parents and de-facto partners less than 2 years to be able to enter an altruistic surrogacy arrangement.

Our state is in a position to demonstrate and lead burgeoning democracies all over the world. Let us show that we accept each individual's choice to have a lifelong relationship based on love, commitment, responsibility and respect. And that within a relationship based on these values, there is the human right to start a family.

Restore the Altruistic Surrogacy Laws Campbell Newman.
Reinstate Civil Unions for same-sex couples LNP.

Let us show the world that in everyway - all love is equal.

      I would like to marry my long term partner of 10 years and we would like the same human equal rights to children, ivf, surrogacy etc.. We are not criminals or animals.. And it is unjust that we are treated this way.
