The Sociology Of Surrogacy

New technology is making it increasingly easier for a woman to carry a baby to term for another person. Some do it as a gift for a loved one; others do it to make money. This hour, we’ll talk about the interpersonal dynamics of surrogacy with UT-Arlington associate professor of sociology Heather Jacobson. She’s the author of “Labor of Love: Gestational Surrogacy and the Work of Making Babies” (Rutgers University Press).
