Description

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director JENNIFER LAHL, President of The Center for Bioethics and Culture Network.

Surrogacy is fast becoming one of the major issues of the 21st centuryŚcelebrities and everyday people are increasingly using surrogates to build their families. But the practice is fraught with complex implications for women, children, and families. What is the impact on the women who serve as surrogates and on the children who are born from surrogacy? In what ways might money complicate things? What about altruistic surrogacy done for a family member or close friend? Is surrogacy a beautiful, loving act or does it simply degrade pregnancy to a service and a baby to a product? Can we find a middle ground? Should we even look for one?

Directed by Jennifer Lahl and Matthew Eppinette. 2014. NR
