Legislation & Policy Advisory Committee

NCLR is a member of the Advisory Committee for Surrogacy360, which seeks to provide acurate information for intended parents seeking to use surrogacy internationally in an ethical manner. NCLR does not generally recommend that U.S. parents engage in surrogacy arrangements outside of the United States because of the danger that children born through surrogacy may not be recognized as U.S. citizens and encourages parents to consult with experienced surrogacy and immigration attorneys in the U.S. before considering surrogacy abroad.


Legislation & Policy

Women’s Health Protection Act

The Women’s Health Protection Act (H.R. 2975/S. 1645) is federal legislation that would protect abortion access from the state-level bans and medically unnecessary restrictions that are currently reducing or eliminating access to care across the country. On February 12, 2020, the House Committee on Energy & Commerce Subcommittee on Health held a hearing on WHPA. NCLR led the drafting and submission of testimony on behalf of numerous LGBTQ organizations in support of the bill.
