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.
