Jindal vetoes surrogacy/midwife farce bill in LA…

Posted on Updated on

Gov Bobby Jindal, the only governor of Indian descent who is also a Catholic, has vetoed a surrogacy womb-for-hire bill which would have given extraordinary power to “home birth” midwives, many of whom are not qualified to be the equivalent of medical assistants in a community medical office.

Jindal vetoed a bill that would have set a new legal and regulatory framework for surrogacy births in the state. The surrogacy bill was one of the more contentious bills of the session because religious groups raised ethical and moral concerns. Louisiana law currently has few regulations governing surrogacy.
