I hope that if you are in the Bay Area you will be able to join us in person on Friday night for a conversation on surrogacy with Julie Bindel, a renowned British expert on surrogacy (full details below). (Please get your tickets via eventbrite ASAP!)

However, for those who are not local, this event will be live streamed via Facebook LIVE on our CBCNetwork Facebook page.

The video will be archived on our Facebook page, YouTube channel, and website for those who are in a different time zone to view later.

Whether you are able to attend in person, watch live on Facebook, or view the recording later, you will hear from a leading feminist voice and be enlightened about why I call California the Reproductive Tourist capital of the world. It truly is the Wild Wild West.

Our Facebook Live Broadcast will start at 7:30, so be sure to set a reminder to tune in then: 7:30 PM Friday, November 11, 2016.

Profile

Julie Bindel is a London-based journalist, writer, broadcaster, and researcher whose work is focused on issues of violence against women.

Bindel is a visiting fellow at Lincoln University and former assistant director of the Research Centre on Violence, Abuse, and Gender Relations at Leeds Metropolitan University.

She is currently in the midst of a research project entitled “The Pimping of Pregnancy: Exposing the International Commercial Surrogacy Business.”

Quotes

“Commercial surrogacy breeds exploitation, abuse and misery. Although the poster girl of surrogates is typically a white, blonde, smiling woman who is carrying a baby in order to make a childless couple happy, the truth is far less palatable.”

“Alongside many feminist and human rights campaigners, I wish to see an end to commercial surrogacy and a serious, honest discussion about the ethics of all forms of outsourcing pregnancy, particularly in a world awash with unwanted and neglected babies and children.”
