Tuesday, February 11, 2020 – Dr. Richard Grazi joined members of RESOLVE and the Modern Families Coalition in Albany to meet with lawmakers and ask them to pass the Child-Parent Security Act and remove the ban on compensated gestational surrogacy.
Millions of New Yorkers need assistance building their families: Women struggling with infertility, cancer survivors impacted by treatment, members of the LGBTQ+ community. For many, surrogacy is a critically important option. For others, it is the only option.
But, New York is still one of only three states in the country than bans compensated gestational surrogacy.
This is a bad policy, cutting across every community in our state regardless of race, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, or health status. It’s time to change that!
For over 10 years GENESIS has been leading the way, blazing a trail for patients to have access to fertility care. This is not just for our patients, but for ALL New Yorkers.
