In Australia regulatory limits with respect to the storage of gametes and embryos differ according to both the ‘type’ of reproductive material and the jurisdiction the material is stored within. This article examines the differences and similarities in storage limits across Australian states, evaluating the reasons for the introduction of storage limits and identifying historical policy change. The article argues that justifications for current storage limits are not clearly articulated and calls for further debate and discussion in this increasingly important area of law.
