dc.description.abstractFIRST PARAGRAPH(S)|This Article will address some of the moral, legal, and ethical considerations relating to the enforcement of surrogacy contracts and the empirical evidence that informs those considerations. Further, thisArticle will set forth Nebraska's surrogacy contract statute, discuss the merits of the statute's policy objectives, and conclude with a discussion of the law's adequacy in light of the development of complex,artificial reproduction procedures.|The Nebraska Unicameral waded into the surrogacy contract debate in 1987.
