Florida Coastal Law School Professor Sarah Sullivan says the court struck down part of a law essentially defining a mother as an egg donor with no rights. The unconstitutional statute said a so-called “commissioning couple” is a man and woman. Sullivan says the Legislature should rewrite that definition.
“You could definitely just say that a commissioning couple is the intended parent, the two parents of a child who will be conceived with the means of assisted reproductive technology. Take gender as far as mother and father out of it,” she suggests.
