Sarah B. Lawsky and Naomi Cahn, “Embryo Exchanges and Adoption Tax Credits”

Post to Twitter

Abstract:
The”Option of Adoption Act,”a Georgia bill introduced by a staunchly anti-abortion Georgia state representative, establishes procedures for genetic donors to relinquish their rights to embryos before birth and permits, but does not require, embryo recipients to petition a court for recognition that they are the legal parents of a child born to them as a result of an embryo transfer.
