On Tuesday, October 30, I will be hosting a screening of our latest documentary film, #BigFertility, at the CBC offices. If you are in or near the Bay Area, please come and join us!
We’ll have plenty of refreshments, we’ll watch the film, and there will be an opportunity for Q&A.
This will be a great opportunity for you to introduce the CBC to friends who might be interested in our work. It will also be a chance for you to explore the issues of surrogacy and third-party reproduction, and the ethics of these new technologies.
The event is free, but PLEASE RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we know who will be there. Space is limited!
Kelly Martinez served as a surrogate mother for three different couples and was threatened with financial ruin after nearly dying during her third surrogacy. But each of her surrogacy journeys had a price to pay. Kelly’s story exemplifies everything that is wrong with the distorted version of fertility medicine that is #BigFertility. It truly is all about the money.
I look forward to seeing you on Oct. 30!
PS: If you’re on Facebook, you can use the Event we’ve created there to share it with your friends.
