NY surrogacy law prohibits surrogacy contracts and are unenforceable. Many NY couples find surrogate mothers from other states that are friendly to surrogacy contracts and these woman come to NY doctors for medical treatment to become pregnant. These women then return to their own home states to give birth. Are these NY doctors legally allowed to do this to help these women to become pregnant / surrogate mothers? Is he violating any laws by doing this?

This should be a criminal law post not a medical malpractice post. Also, private individuals do not determine whether it is a crime. Speak with the police or DA. You lack standing to raise a med mal question, unless you are the patient.
