ASRM – MHPG Conference

Panel discussion with Carole LieberWilkins (MFT), Hilary Hanafin (Ph.D.), Carrie Eichberg (Psy.D.), Elaine Gordon (Ph.D.), Cynthia Fruchtman, and Darlene Pinkerton (R.N.) regarding the most challenging ethical problems these professionals have encountered.  Hilary Hanafin stressed the importance of surrogacy being an alternative only when absolutely necessary.  She pointed out that there are Surrogate Mothers who have died or been left in a coma due to pregnancy complications.  Although we all do our best to ensure everyone’s safety, this is a reality and therefore, I agree that surrogacy should be reserved only for those in true need.
