After a heartbreaking death this past weekend, the need for a will that contemplates what to do with sperm/eggs after death becomes very clear. Read my article here.
Most surrogacies result in a baby for a grateful and loving family and a surrogate well paid for her time and effort. And then there are the surrogacy stories that actually make the news, like the one I wrote about in my article on Above the Law this week. Deceit, bribery, absconding with someone else’s baby, and an epic legal battle make this story especially newsworthy.
In my article at Above the Law this week, I share the story of a couple whose right to conceive a child using their dead son’s sperm was upheld in an Israeli court. Previously, only spouses of deceased loved ones were granted this right. But it begs the question: was there consent? Did the passed relative want a baby conceived after his or her death?
This week on Above the Law, my article responds to a recently introduced proposed bill that would severely limit the ability of wounded soldiers to receive IVF treatment to have families. It’s a terrible proposal, and shows a true lack of respect and support for our wounded soldiers. You can sign a petition against the legislation here.
This week in my article at Above the Law, there are sometimes interesting prohibitions in a surrogate’s contract, like not traveling to areas affected by Zika, or not having sex while getting ready for implantation.
