VOTE NO for Gestational Surrogacy (SB 162) Act by Sen. Gary Smith
Many times we choose to expand our families in many different ways, and this can at times include surrogacy. Forum For Equality supports the rights of individuals to utilize surrogacy as a viable option, but these option should not be limited to just married couples. Sen. Smith’s bill limits surrogacy of “intended parents” to only married couples, and despite our efforts to amend the current language, the bill is headed for the House Civil Law and Procedure Committee without this change. Please let the House Civil Law and Procedure Committee know that surrogacy is a welcome and acceptable way to expand one’s family, but should be a viable option for all of Louisiana’s families.
