The fight to protect our shared human future is ongoing and ever changing. With every technological development, every medical breakthrough, every piece of bioethics legislation, come questions of not only what can be done but what should be done.

Our goal is to seek out and share information about the issues that most profoundly affect our humanity, especially issues that arise in the lives of the most vulnerable among us. Egg and sperm donation. Surrogacy. Stem cell research. Fetal genetic testing. Human enhancement and CRISPR technology.

We’ve seen stories about all these this year, some good and some shockingly bad – stay tuned for our list of 2018 Winners and Losers coming in January. But no matter how 2018 ends, we will begin 2019 as committed as ever to campaigning for ethical legislation and protection for the vulnerable women and children affected by third-party reproduction.

As we enter the final days of the year, please consider a tax-deductible gift toward our work. We recently learned that India’s Lok Sabha (a house of Parliament) passed Surrogacy (Regulation) Bill 2016, aimed at banning commercial surrogacy. Let successes like this remind you why it’s so important for us to be able to fund work and travel both in the U.S. and abroad, including speaking to international media and governing bodies, and translating our latest documentary, #BigFertility, into more languages.

We are a small but high-impact organization because of you. Literally, dollar for dollar, your support goes directly to getting the job done. We are proud of our accomplishments and promise you that your gifts will be used wisely.

The Center for Bioethics and Culture is a non-profit 501(c)(3) public benefit educational organization. All gifts are tax-deductible.
