Reconceiving Surrogacy: Towards a Reproductive Justice Account of Indian Surrogacy

The Philosophy department will be hosting a guest speaker next ThursdayJanuary 23 at 5 p.m. in Coleman Hall 3752 (right next to the Philosophy department office).

Alison Bailey is a professor of Philosophy at Illinois State University where she directs the Women's and Gender Studies Program. She has published extensively on issues at the intersections of feminist theory, philosophy of race/whiteness studies, and epistemology.

On Thursday, she will present, 'Reconceiving Surrogacy: Towards a Reproductive Justice Account of Indian Surrogacy.'

Surrogacy (paying women to gestate children that are not their own)  in India is booming, thanks to the low cost of the procedure, availability of surrogates in the world's second most populous country and the fact that India is one of the few countries in the world that allows commercial surrogacy. Outsourcing pregnancies to developing countries raises new moral questions about that nature of this emerging global industry.
