Surrogate mother who had triplets is now seeking for parental rights

Remember the 50 year old man who asked a surrogate to carry his fertilized eggs for him in the hopes of having a child only for her to end up being pregnant with triplets? Remember he asked her to abort 2 of the 3 fetuses because he couldn't afford to take care of 3 children? Well, she gave birth to all 3 children on Monday in a California hospital, and is now seeking parental rights.

The babies were delivered several weeks premature Monday night, according to a lawyer for Melissa Cook, who is the 47-year-old surrogate mother.

That man, a deaf, 50-year-old postal worker from Georgia identified in court papers as “C.M.,” paid Cook to carry a child for him.
"I'm healthy, I'm 28 weeks pregnant, the babies are doing great, the three little boys I have inside me," Cook told Fox News outside court earlier this month before they were born.
In California, a gestational surrogate – a woman who carries a donor’s eggs - has no parental rights, but Cook is challenging the state's surrogacy law in federal court, claiming it is unconstitutional.
Cook's lawyer, Harold Cassidy, a nationally prominent pro-life and anti-surrogacy lawyer said:
"It's an attempt to reduce women to an object, or a breeding animal," charges who is calling for a moratorium on surrogacy'.
"You can doctor this up, you can play word games with it, but this is simply and purely the sale of a child," he added.
Cassidy told Fox News the babies were immediately taken from Cook as soon as they were born, because a state court judge had granted the father parental rights, a ruling Cassidy is appealing.
"The hospital personnel refused to let Melissa see the children, allow her to know what their condition is, refused to tell her their exact weights, and she is not being permitted to see the children at all," Cassidy said. "We have a mother who loves them, who fought for them, who defended their life, who stands ready to take care of them. You can't tell a mother who gives birth to children that what happens to the children is none of her business."

What is the difference between this and baby factory in the eastern part of Nigeria.These Americans are the craziest in the world.Do you call this civilization? This is barbaric.Animals behave this way.Later they talk about fundamental human right,when they themselves are the greatest violator of fundamental human right.Useless people.

This is difficult, at first she had no right to the kids, but since d man asked her to get an abortion n she refuse, I guess that gave her the right.

Its the law which she knew before she collected the money and accepted the conditions. She can ask the man not fight in the court...

Gabriel Immanuel said...

He didn't reject . The woman served as human incubators. The baby isn't hers biologically self. She only carried it

Gabriel Immanuel said...

How is he greedy

Chidinma Eze said...

Exactly my point. The woman is not serious

Chidinma Eze said...

Oh dear its so unfortunate you just a surrogate! Jide obi gi aka (take heart?

Ade Olasengbe said...

The woman that carried the pregnancy has equal right. The man is greedy, he should have carried d pregnancy himself......idiot.
