Her case, brought on behalf of the three children and herself, is the first case in the United States that challenges the constitutionality of a state surrogacy enabling statute and has broad implications for the culture at large, and for the women and children of the nation.

Melissa Cook will discuss her epic court battle to protect the rights and welfare of the three baby boys to whom she gave birth on February 22, 2016. The 50 year-old single man who entered into the surrogacy agreement had demanded that Melissa abort one of the children. When Melissa refused, he stated he would give one of the babies away. The California State Court Judge stated that what happens to the babies is none of that court’s business [please note: Melissa Cook v. C.M. / California Court of Appeal, Case No. B270525 / Melissa Cook, & Melissa Cook as GAL of Baby A, Baby B, & Baby C v.
