New Jersey governor vetoes bill to liberalize surrogate parenting
Catholic World News - August 09, 2012
New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie has vetoed a bill that would have allowed more liberal use of surrogate parents.
"Permitting adults to contract with others regarding a child in such a manner unquestionably raises serious and significant issues," Christie said. "While some all applaud the freedom to explore these new, and sometimes necessary, arranged births, others will note the profound change in the traditional beginnings of the family that this bill will enact. I am not satisfied that these questions have been sufficiently studied by the Legislature at this time."
