Happy CPSA Day!
Today, February 15, 2021, the Child-Parent Security Act
legalizing compensated gestational surrogacy in New York becomes effective!
What does this mean?
This means Intended Parents can secure their legal parentage to their child conceived via assisted reproduction at the time of birth.
This means single women having babies with the assistance of sperm donors can be secure in their legal parentage of their child.
This means same-sex couples can avoid demeaning and costly second parent adoptions.
This means gestational carriers are guaranteed every explicit right included in the Surrogates' Bill of Rights (below).
This means every party to a surrogacy agreement is entitled to independent legal counsel of their own choosing licensed in New York.
This means every party entering into a surrogacy agreement is doing so with fully informed consent.
Most importantly, this means every child born via assisted reproduction or third party reproduction can be secure in knowing their legal parents.
For more details on the Child-Parent Security Act and what it means for
intended parents, surrogates, surrogacy programs, reproductive clinics, and attorneys,
