Massachusetts has a new bill that is bound to hurt women and children

The Bay State is often the East Coast leader of leftist social crusades.

While LGBT groups are celebrating, the mood among socially conservative groups is anything but cheery.

Now, Massachusetts has a new bill that is bound to hurt women and children.

On Wednesday the lower House of the Massachusetts House legislature unanimously passed a bill that would allow mothers to engage in baby-selling—under the name of “parentage equality.”

LGBTQ rights groups contend that the bill will fix what they call “archaic” sections of state law that can make it difficult for LGBTQ people who use alternative methods of reproduction, like invitro fertilization, to establish legal parenthood.

The bill’s proponents say that the current law could force one parent in a same-sex couple to formally adopt their child to gain the same status as a birth parent.

Rep. Michael Day, co-chair of the Judiciary Committee said, “For many children in the Commonwealth, the person they call mom or dad is shunned legally. The person that the child calls mom or dad has no standing and scant legal rights or recourse. They are shut out with the full force of our laws.”

While the political left celebrates, others warn of consequences

But conservatives say the bill redefines parenthood in a way that strips all mention of mothers and fathers from parentage law, replacing these traditional roles with gender-erased language.

More worryingly, the new bill sets the stage for a slew of negative consequences.

The Massachusetts Family Institute warns that surrogacy and donor conception arrangements can harm both children and the adults involved.

The organization released a statement saying, “These bills would prioritize the desires of adults over the needs of children in the Commonwealth. They would make it easier for people to purchase children through surrogacy arrangements and sperm or egg donorship. In doing so, they would harm both children and parents.”

Surrogacy brings about moral and legal issues and can lead to the exploitation of impoverished mothers who feel pressured to participate.

It’s happened before where similar laws have been enacted.

Three California women were convicted of running an illegal baby-selling ring under the guise of a surrogacy agency in 2011.

While the women ran afoul of the law, this wouldn’t have been possible without California allowing the names of unrelated adults to be listed on a child’s birth certificate without any adoption procedure.

Paving the way for unfair treatment of children

Surrogacy and donor conceptions reduce safeguards for children and this bill essentially allows what would otherwise be considered child trafficking.

At a more basic level, some argue that surrogacy is unfair to the children involved.

When children are conceived through surrogacy or artificial insemination, they are almost always separated from at least one and often both parents.

This sort of arrangement is highly correlated with mental and emotional problems, increased risk of abuse and poorer life outcomes. 

Adoption aims to remedy an already broken situation, but surrogacy and donation intentionally create that separation, leaving the consequences for the child.

The bill will next be put to a vote in the state senate but the timeline for that is still unclear.
