AN ACT CONCERNING ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION BY DONOR

SUMMARY: This act updates the state's artificial insemination laws, reflecting current assisted reproduction practices. It defines “artificial insemination” as a medical procedure in which a human egg is fertilized assisted by artificial means, including intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization. It also redefines AID (which, under prior law, was “artificial insemination with the semen of a donor”) as “artificial insemination with donor eggs or sperm”. It makes a conforming change in the law specifying that donors or their relatives and heirs do not acquire legal rights or interests in children born as a result of AID.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 1, 2007
