Commercial Surrogacy Booming In California, Due In Part To State’s Protections

Booming Demand, State Protections Attract Commercial Surrogate Birthing
Surrogacy has been done privately for years, often with a family member or friend willing to carry the baby.

California is attractive for commercial surrogacy because the state offers some legal protection for surrogates and intended parents. (Kathy Roberson, 8/5)
