New York Fertility Law
Surrogacy | Egg Donation | Sperm Donation | Embryo Donation | Parentage
Child-Parent Security Act
The New York Child-Parent Security Act (CPSA) legalized gestational surrogacy ending the long-standing ban throughout New York State.
More than simply legalizing gestational surrogacy in New York, the CPSA provides individuals growing their families through assisted reproduction with a clear path to establish their legal parentage.
New York is the first state to include a detailed list titled the Surrogates Bill of Rights, listing well-established best practices for entering into gestational surrogacy arrangements.
The New York Department of Health requires all surrogacy agencies operating in New York be licensed and in good standing.
