How the Dobbs decision impacts surrogacy

On Behalf of | Feb 8, 2023 | Surrogacy Law |

Surrogacy involves a host of legal considerations. Many involve reproductive law, which is a complicated and frequently shifting legal landscape.

The recent Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson* was a seismic shift in reproductive rights. In curtailing abortion rights, it also had a significant impact on surrogacy arrangements, which typically include provisions for pregnancy termination under certain circumstances.

Surrogates, prospective parents and surrogacy agencies should understand the ramifications of the Dobbs decision. At Fertility & Surrogacy Legal Group, APC, we’re committed to educating clients about all aspects of surrogacy. Our team recently published a free white paper exploring the fallout from the Dobbs decision, and the new challenges and considerations that must be addressed in surrogacy arrangements. The paper also serves as a comprehensive resource for intended parents, surrogates and surrogacy agencies, covering the many legal aspects of surrogacy.

We invite you to read the white paper for free on our website and share it with others who may be interested in learning more about surrogacy in a post-Dobbs world.
