CWN Editor's Note: The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has issued a second statement in support of Pope Francis’s renewed condemnation of surrogacy in his “state of the world” address.

The first statement was issued by Chieko Noguchi, the USCCB’s executive director of public affairs; the second, by Bishop Robert Barron of Winona-Rochester (MN), chairman of the bishops’ Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life, and Youth.

Catholic teaching against surrogacy is discussed in Donum Vitae (1987) and Dignitas Personae (2008), two documents of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
