Hoosier Baby? An Intro to Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Law in Indiana
This presentation is geared toward judges, family law practitioners, and professionals interested in learning about the rapidly growing field of Assisted Reproductive Technology (“ART”) law. One in eight couples in the United States struggle with infertility, and a wide variety of family building options are available to them such as gestational surrogacy, egg donation, and embryo donation. The modern family includes single-parent and same-sex households who also use these forms of assisted reproduction to create a family.
As ART becomes more prevalent throughout the country, various states face a unique challenge where the law has not caught up with advances in reproductive technology. Indiana statutory law concerning ART is largely absent or antiquated. Indiana courts and practitioners therefore rely on case law and best practices to address legal aspects of ART such as the establishment of legal parentage, gestational surrogacy agreements, and egg/embryo donation contracts. As assisted reproduction continues to gain traction, familiarity with ART law in Indiana is crucial for Indiana family law practitioners and judges.
