The article reporting the meeting of the American Bar Assn. family law section dealing with surrogate motherhood was of great interest to me as I am an attorney who arranges surrogate mother contracts ("Bar's Family Law 'Think Tank' Tackles Surrogate Motherhood Issue" by Beverly Beyette, Jan. 21). I have been involved in some 100 such situations (without any problems) and am published on the subject. In fact, I helped write the 1982 California Bill introduced by (Assemblyman) Mike Roos (D-Los Angeles).
Do the "cardinals" of the American Bar Assn. care what the practitioners in the field have to say? No! Their opinion is that we " . . . lawyers have been corrupted into becoming money-making machines and forgetting that there are broader social issues."
