Alright my friends, the time has come for our Three Part Surrogacy Series. I have been wanting to unpack surrogacy on this show for a while now and offer my listeners a walk through as to why it is inherently anti-feminist and anti-motherbaby. So for the next three weeks we will be doing a deep dive looking at it from every angle, with experts on commercial surrogacy in Part 1 and 3 of this series.
We will also have a personal story with our guest next week, Briana, who will be sharing her story of deep pain and regret having signed up to be a surrogate mother.
I’m offering this to all of you because until it was spelled out to me, I had never given it much thought and didn’t know enough about it to be critical of it and vocal about the objective dangers.
So with that, I hope you will join me today with my guest and personal hero, Marylou Singleton, as we walk through the ABC’s of surrogacy and why it is an industry we are staunchly against - as you cannot be both *for* motherbaby, and for the commodification of women and children.
