Protecting Modern Families Coalition Welcomes Governor Cuomo Prioritizing Surrogacy Legislation in 2020

NEW YORK — Responding to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s statement in support of the Child Parent Security Act in 2020, leaders in the Protecting Modern Families Coalition issued the following statements this morning:

“On behalf of the Protecting Modern Families Coalition, I’m thrilled that Gov. Cuomo is again prioritizing the Child Parent Security Act. Last session, Gov. Cuomo’s leadership helped us get closer than ever before to passing this important legislation which helps all New Yorkers who rely on medical advances to build a family. We are ready to roll up our sleeves and work with him again in 2020 to get this bill to his desk and help improve the lives of so many families.”  

  • The Rev. Stan J. Sloan, CEO, Family Equality

“Governor Cuomo has been a clear and consistent champion for women and families struggling with infertility. The Child Parent Security Act will end New York’s ban on surrogacy and replace it with a measure that has the strongest protections for women acting as surrogates of any measure in the country. We applaud Gov. Cuomo for standing with all New York families and look forward to partnering with him to get this critical legislation over the finish line in 2020.”
