Every human life has value.

It seems like I’ve been talking a lot about surrogacy lately. But I’m not the only one. This is becoming a major issue world-wide, especially since it’s been popularized by celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Elton John and now Nicole Kidman.

Made in India is a documentary about the booming surrogacy industry in India where many couples (who don’t have a movie star’s budget) are turning to for a cheaper option. From the film’s website:

The film shows the journey of an infertile American couple, an Indian surrogate and the reproductive outsourcing business that brings them together. Weaving together these personal stories within the context of a growing international industry, MADE IN INDIA explores a complicated clash of families in crisis, reproductive technology, and choice from a global perspective.

Here’s the trailer:

    A Brave New World, indeed. I gather that gentleman isn’t actually familiar with the novel.
