A Kansas lawmaker will introduce a bill that would ban surrogate pregnancy in that state.
Sen. Mary Pilcher-Cook, a Shawnee Republican who leads the Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee, said her bill would be similar to the ban on surrogate pregnancy in the District of Columbia.
“Currently in Kansas, there are no laws regarding surrogacy,” she told The Topeka Capitol-Journal. “I’d like the committee to take a look at that.”
DC forbids Surrogte contracts and imposes prison sentences and fines for those who try to circumvent the laws.
