U.S. Donor Conceived Council’s Model Legislation

Through our work in Colorado and California in 2022, USDCC has developed Model Legislation that protects the best interests of donor conceived people while considering the input of stakeholders.


In 2022, USDCC successfully introduced and enacted the Colorado “Donor-Conceived Persons and Families of Donor-Conceived Persons Protection Act.” The bill passed with bipartisan support and led USDCC to form relationships with stakeholders nationwide. Learn more about that effort here.


USDCC achieved bipartisan support and passage of AB 1986 in California in 2022. Although the bill was ultimately vetoed by the governor, its resounding passage and support from a variety of stakeholders signaled a change in the way the public now views issues surrounding donor conception.
