Over the weekend, the New York Times ran the first article in what we understand will be a series of articles on surrogacy.
The article is entitled “Coming to U.S. for Baby, and Womb to Carry It: Foreign Couples Heading to America for Surrogate Pregnancies,” and is available on the NYT website.
Heather, who is featured in our Breeders: A Subclass of Women? is interviewed in the article, and a quote from her, from Breeders?, was yesterday’s New York Times Quotation of The Day.

The reporter writing the series has interviewed Jennifer extensively. As the rest of the articles in the series are released, we will be sure to post them here, on facebook, and on twitter…so watch these spaces!
If you haven’t seen Breeders? yet, you can watch it online at Vimeo, order the DVD here, or attend next month’s screening in Minneapolis.
