Surrogacy is fast becoming one of the major issues of the 21st century—celebrities 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?
“Breeders” is a documentary that explores the risks of surrogate mothers and egg donations, and the commoditization of fertility and pregnancy related to human rights violations and women’s empowerment. The Center for Bioethics and Culture explores this important issue by talking with surrogates, physicians, psychologists, and activists across the political and ideological spectrum, and the result of these conversations is powerfully documented in “Breeders.”
