A bill that would legalize gestational surrogacy in New York is expected to be considered on the floor of the state Senate on Tuesday, part of a package of a LGBTQ bills Gov. Andrew Cuomo is pushing at the end of the session.

The bill would make New York one of the last states to legalize the practice, which is meant to help couples that cannot conceive as well as LGBTQ couples.

Cuomo on Monday co-wrote an op/ed posted on BuzzFeed with Bravo personality Andy Cohen to push for the legislation.

“New York sent a strong message about the important of families – and how they come in many colors, shapes and sizes – when we passed marriage equality during Governor Cuomo’s first year in office,” they wrote. “But by banning gestational surrogacy, we are saying to the LGBTQ community and those who struggle with infertility: you can’t have a child in your own state.

“In 2019, no one should have to forfeit the joy of raising a child – not in an era when modern medicine is performing new miracles every day, and when we have reached a wide consensus that the only prerequisite to forming a family is love.”

But the bill has been opposed by the Catholic Church as well as some women’s advocates who are worried about the consequences of paying someone to carry a baby to term.

The Coalition Against Trafficking In Women wrote in a memorandum of opposition that the measure would be “tantamount to the renting of women’s wombs and the buying and selling of babies for profit.”
