Election Survey - South Australia 2014 - Q8

Q8 - Assisted reproductive treatment

Assisted reproductive treatment in South Australia was wisely restricted to married (or long-term cohabiting) infertile women, on the basis that children do best when they are raised by their natural mother and father. Extending assisted reproductive treatment to fertile women would give endorsement by parliament (at taxpayer expense) to the deliberate creation of fatherless children.

Would you oppose any bill to extend assisted reproductive treatment to fertile women?
