Albany lawmakers pass landmark surrogacy reform, after years of deliberation and negotiations. In a marathon budget session, New York lawmakers passed on April 2, 2020, The Child Parent Security Act (CPSA), the most protective and forward-thinking surrogacy legislation in the country. Only Michigan and Louisiana continue to ban gestational surrogacy for LGBT individuals and couples, Michigan banning gestational surrogacy for all Michiganders. Men Having Babies has advocated for this reform over the years, and MHB staff and members have been extensively active in lobbying for the CPSA. MHB now offers answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about the bill, and how it may impact our members' surrogacy journey.
