Contracts Reading

Last night I read an excellent opinion, in Contracts, the case was "In the Matter of BABY M." BABY M is a custody case dealing with a surrogacy contract, and custody of the child conceived under the contract. 

Here's the best part:
There are, in a civilized society, some things which money cannot buy.
In America, we decided long ago
 that merely because conduct purchased by money was "voluntary"
did not mean that it was good or beyond regulation or prohibition....
There are... values that society deems more important
than granting to wealth whatever it can buy,
be it labor, love, or life.
-Wilentz, C.J.

Written in '88, I wonder if Justice Wilentz was a Beatles fan.
