In a first for the state of Queensland, the man who donated sperm to a lesbian couple will have his name removed from his two children's birth certificates in a bid by the couple to be recognised as the legal parents.
ACL's Queensland director Wendy Francis said Justice Ann Lyons' ruling was lying to the children about their origins and denying them their human rights under international law.
"Governments have a duty to always act in the best interest of the child. Justice Lyons' ruling means urgent legislative changes are needed to put the rights of children ahead of the desires of adults," Ms Francis said.
According to the Brisbane Times, the man claimed he was happy to donate sperm but did not really want to be a parent. He however did not consent to being removed from his biological children's birth certificates, insisting that he always wanted a relationship with the children.
Ms Francis said the LNP promised to amend the Surrogacy Act to protect the rights of children and urged the Government to meet its election commitment.
"Children have the right to know their parents and as far as possible be cared for by them", as outlined in Article 7 of the United Nations Rights of the Child, she said.
Recent parliamentary inquiries in New South Wales and Victoria and a Senate inquiry had all found that donor conceived children had been severely traumatised by not knowing their biological origins.
In Justice Lyons' written judgement she ruled that the register will now "accurately reflect the correct parents for the children and the true nature of the relationship between (the couple)."
In an ongoing, separate case, it is yet to be determined whether the father will be able to have contact with his children.
