The Sexual and Reproductive Health Matters (SRHM) podcast released a new episode last week, Surrogacy and Reproductive Justice, featuring Marcin Smietana (ReproSoc), Sarojini Nadimpally (Founder of Sama Resource Group for Women and Health in New Delhi and the former co-chair of People’s Health Movement Global) and Mindy Jane Roseman (Director of International Law Programs at Yale Law, Director of the Gruber Program for the Global Justice and Women’s Rights, and SRHM Associate Editor). Together, they discuss the evolution and complexities of surrogacy worldwide, what the perspective of reproductive justice contributes to understanding surrogacy, and how gay communities have increasingly been embracing surrogacy as a pathway to parenthood. This podcast episode builds on an article published by SRHM earlier this year titled ‘‘Moral frameworks of commercial surrogacy within the US, India and Russia’’ and co-authored by Marcin Smietana with Sharmila Rudrappa and Christina Weis.
