Great news has surfaced regarding the Kansas surrogacy debacle. ASRM reported that lawmakers in Kansas will not be voting on a bill that would ban and criminalize surrogacy contracts. The bill, sponsored by Senator Mary Pilcher-Cook, yielded overwhelmingly negative attention. As such, Pilcher-Cook was pressured to pull the bill from consideration for this year.
Voices of reason, including that of ASRM member Dr. David Grainger, prevailed at the hearing. In addition to not having public support or that of the majority of her colleagues, the Senator also did not have the support of the Senate leadership.
