SBS forum program Insight will tonight look at the issue of commercial surrogacy.
Host Jenny Brockie will guide a discussion about the challenges, laws and ethics of the practice. The forum will bring together ethicists, legislators, surrogate mothers, infertile couples and children born through reproductive technologies, to voice their opinions on the topic.
Guests will include family law specialist Stephen Page, NSW Minister for Community Services Linda Burney and Sam Everingham, a Melbourne-based surrogacy advocate intending to become a parent with his partner Phil through a New Delhi-based surrogacy agency.
The debate will continue online at sbs.com.au/insight, where viewers can leave comments or ask guests their own questions in a live chat after the show. Twitter and Facebook followers can also join in the discussion.
Insight’s commerical surrogacy special will air on Tuesday, March 22 at 7.30pm on SBS ONE.
