Publisher's Summary

Dustin Lance Black, the Oscar-winning screenwriter and activist, explores attitudes towards surrogacy. He shares his own journey to have a child, with husband Tom Daley, through surrogacy. 

Dustin beautifully and thoroughly explores how the question of surrogacy links to wider societal questions: how much control do women legally have over their body? Do we have a right to know our genetic history? How can LGBTQ+ couples shield their children from homophobia? 

Dustin explores the personal, scientific, financial and legal aspects of surrogacy. He talks to women who are surrogates, hears the experiences of straight and gay intended parents who have built a family via surrogacy and raises concerns about the current surrogacy laws in the UK. Dustin hears from families in different countries who have had different and difficult processes and also hears from children born through surrogacy on the right to know their genetic history, always bringing it back to why some people are uncomfortable with surrogacy.
