Abstract

The topic of surrogate parenting arouses strong feelings. The Baby M case and its aftermath stirred powerful emotions in millions made aware of the drama through newspaper, magazine, or television coverage of the trial, or, through the made-for-TV movie. Unexpectedly faced with the need to come up with law and policy on surrogacy, state legislatures may act hastily, without examining how surrogacy and other reproductive arrangements challenge us to articulate shared values about the meaning of family life, parenthood, sexuality, and reproduction.
