Surrogacy and Equality

Victoria Ferrara


Surrogacy can be an equal opportunity connection. In the U.S., there are various surrogacy agencies, such as Worldwide Surrogacy Specialists LLC, who acknowledge, accept, and help make growing a family possible for all intended parents, including those from the LGBT community. Each contributing factor that makes surrogacy possible is wonderfully powerful. Modern science, assisted reproductive technology, in-vitro fertilization, and gestational carriers are all examples of how truly complex and advanced surrogacy is. Each step of the surrogacy journey takes into account respect and consideration for everyone involved.

There are many benefits to working with a surrogacy agency. One of the benefits is the surrogate screening process. Throughout the screening process, the agency will know specifically what the potential surrogate is or is not willing to support. Details might include the number of IVF attempts and how many embryos she is willing to transfer. The agency then works to match intended parents with a surrogate who shares their interests and needs.

The 2015 Federal Supreme Court ruling that made same-sex marriage legal nationwide was a thrilling success for this country. There is, however, a need for a national, federal ruling to secure and acknowledge the parenting rights of same-sex couples who choose surrogacy. Fortunately, there are certain states in the US that create that equality and safety for LGBT intended parents and it is important that the laws in which the surrogate resides are considered.

Connecticut is one of eight states with excellent surrogacy laws that can make the process easier for intended parents. Part of what makes Connecticut and the other seven "green light" states more desirable to pursue surrogacy is that they do not discriminate against same-sex/LGBT intended parents.

In addition, Intended Parents who are matched with a surrogate who lives in Connecticut can obtain a pre-birth order. By obtaining a pre-birth order, the Intended Parents are recognized as the legal parents of the baby or babies prior to the birth. Establishing parentage whether via a pre-birth order or a post-birth order is important to consider when matching with a surrogate. The surrogacy laws in every state vary, and therefore, how legal parentage is established varies from state to state. With the help of a surrogacy agency, you will have the support, direction, and expertise to help you every step of the way throughout your journey.

Thus, finding the right surrogacy agency is important.
