This is refreshing. From feminists, no less. It’s an article about a conference that aims to shed light on the harms of surrogacy.
The rights of the women who are carrying their baby, who are selling their eggs, aren’t considered at all,” Bindel said. “No one has the right to a child. And there are [already] plenty of babies and children who really do need care.”
I’m reminded of a poignant line from The Hunt for the Wilderpeople (a movie I cannot recommend highly enough) where the main character, a child in foster care, muses about how some people who want kids can’t have them, and others who don’t want kids, can and do have them. It’s one of life’s unfair basic truths.
