"New York State has led the way for progressive reforms for the LGBTQ community and women's equality movement. It is unconscionable that people need to leave the state to have a child due to New York State's antiquated surrogacy laws. I urge the legislature to join the countless LGBTQ and women's equality advocates and reform New York's surrogacy laws now. Too many families have struggled for too long."
