SD Lawmakers Reject Surrogacy Bill

February 14, 2011, 1:51 PM

SD Lawmakers Reject Surrogacy Bill
PIERRE, SD - A South Dakota legislative committee has rejected a bill to outlaw surrogacy arrangements.

Surrogacy is an arrangement where a woman carries someone else's child.  The bill would make any surrogacy agreement unenforceable. It also would keep parental rights with the woman who gives birth to the child.  People involved in surrogacy also could face civil penalties and criminal charges.

The House Judiciary Committee killed the measure after opponents said it would go too far in preventing surrogates from helping couples who cannot have their own children. Supporters say South Dakota needs to pass some laws to regulate surrogacy before it becomes more common.
