A “Product of Surrogacy” (Interview Video)

by Jennifer Lahl, CBC President on April 24, 2015

Last weekend we held The Twelfth Annual Paul Ramsey Award Dinner, and it was a great success. As part of the evening, I interviewed Jessica Kern, a young woman who was born through a commercial surrogacy arrangement and who describes herself as "a product of surrogacy." It was moving and powerful to hear her story, and I am very pleased to be able to share a video of that interview with you.

It is so vitally important that we hear stories like Jessica's so that we can fully understand the ways in which surrogacy affects the children involved. Please watch the video and share it with others, especially on social media.

As I mention in the video, Jessica appears in our documentary Breeders: A Subclass of Women?. You can watch the film online, and you can purchase a DVD of the film on the film's website.

We are so thankful for those who were able to join us for this year's Ramsey Dinner. Next year's dinner will be held on April 16, 2016, in Diablo, California. I hope that you will save that date and make plans to join us!

Jennifer
