Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: Today we’re joined by one of your favorite guests, Jennifer Lahl, president of The Center for Bioethics and Culture and documentary filmmaker, to discuss the surrogacy industry, why it’s in the news, and how women are being targeted to sell their eggs. The rates of single men buying surrogate children have grown significantly in the past few years – Jennifer breaks down why this raises some red flags. We also discuss how this crosses over into gender theory and the exploitation of young people. Jennifer’s upcoming documentary, “The Detransition Diaries: Saving Our Sisters,” dives into stories of de-transitioning and the medical industry’s harm on young people and women’s fertility, and you can support it here!
