Today we received a promising response from the Department of Health and Ageing.
Firstly they “commended” us for the work we are doing to create awareness about the Medicare laws as they relate to surrogacy.
Secondly they reiterated that they are committed to medically necessary services to the public and are therefore actively considering the issues raised in the surrogacy paper. They have advised that I am welcome to contact them to see how this work is progressing and provided the contact Ms Mary Warner, Director of Medical Services.
I am so proud of this response and hope that they are sincere in their response.
Please continue the great work you are all doing in creating awareness about this issue, great joint effort.
