Earlier this month NPR reported that Minnesota state legislators are considering a bill that would regulate gestational surrogacy. A gestational surrogate (or gestational carrier) is a woman who is not genetically related to the pregnancy she carries and delivers for other(s).
The bill received support from RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, which is a nonprofit education and advocacy group, and the American Society for Reproductive Management, as well as people who have created families through surrogacy, but was opposed by a California-based group called the Center for Bioethics and Culture network, as well as the Minnesota Catholic Conference.
