2016 Senate Bill 811: Permit surrogate mother contracts
Introduced by Sen. Rebekah Warren D-Ann Arbor on February 23, 2016
To permit “gestational surrogate parentage” contracts. A 1988 law banned all surrogate mother contracts that require a woman to “relinquish her parental or custodial rights” to a child she bears whether she conceived the child or an embryo was implanted. The proposed new law would permit the latter – contracting for a woman to bear and relinquish an implanted child to whom she is not related - subject to various conditions specified in the bill and with the approval of a court in advance.   Official Text and Analysis.
