Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: Today we’re joined by Libby Emmons, editor in chief of the The Post Millennial, to discuss the ethics of surrogacy. We discuss Libby’s political journey from liberal feminist to more conservative in thought, as well as her background in theater and how the art landscape has changed from a focus on beauty to a focus on activism. We discuss how surrogacy is merely a fulfillment of adult desires to obtain posterity and legacy, with no thought given to the horrible effects it can have on the child, and compare it to adoption (which many surrogacy apologists argue is ethically the same). A medical journal has recently suggested that brain-dead women could serve as surrogates for those looking to rent a womb, which is yet another example of the horrifying ethics of the surrogacy industry. We discuss this and reiterate that consent-based morality is neither ethical nor sustainable for society. We also discuss the story of a Yale professor who has argued that mass euthanasia for the elderly would solve Japan’s aging-population burdens, further proof that the value of humans is in question.
