–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CassidyLawFirm

   

What:

Melissa Cook discusses her epic court battle to protect the rights
and welfare of the three baby boys to whom she gave birth on
February 22, 2016. Her case, brought on behalf of the three children
and herself, is the first in the nation which challenges the
constitutionality of a state surrogacy enabling statute.
 
The case has broad implications for the culture at large, and for
the women and children of the nation.
 

The 50 year-old single man who entered into the surrogacy
agreement had demanded that Melissa abort one of the children.
When Melissa refused, he stated he would give one of the babies
away. The California State Court Judge stated that what happens to
the babies is none of that court’s business.
