VIDEO: Michigan State Rep. says surrogacy is the ‘only option’ she has to have children due to cancer diagnoses

https://www.tiktok.com/@gandernewsroom/video/7348151347641896235 The Michigan Family Protection Act, a set of bills aimed at fortifying parental rights in IVF and surrogacy, is gaining momentum in the Michigan legislature. Michigan is the only state in the US that prohibits paid surrogacy contracts, complicating paths to parenthood for many families. This legislation aims to change that by repealing the ban and ensuring legal rights for all involved in surrogacy and assisted reproductive technology, like IVF. Rep. Samantha Steckloff, facing her own infertility battle due to cancer, emphasized the urgency of protecting IVF and surrogacy to help Michiganders start their own families. If enacted, the bill package would establish regulations for surrogate pregnancies and ensure that individuals conceiving through IVF are legally recognized as the parents of their child.
