We really need your support today. The workload is tremendous, the stakes are high, and no one is leading the efforts described below like us at the CBC. Any gift, no matter how large or how small, will help us now.

Today we are pleased to release a new ebook - "Not Just Creating Your Own Family: An Interview with an Egg Donor Recipient Mother."

As you will read in the ebook, "Sandra" has two sons, one of whom was born through egg donation. Her reflections on egg donation add to the very important conversations around and considerations regarding egg donation and third-party reproduction in important and valuable ways. We are grateful to be able to share her story.

On Tuesday, March 14, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM, we will host two panel discussions in New York City under the heading “Trading on the Female Body.” The first panel is comprised of women who have been harmed by surrogacy and egg donation. The second panel will feature international feminist campaigners against surrogacy.

While the support of you and others has funded the bulk of the costs for this event, we are adding two speakers, and turning one of their stories into our next documentary film.

Can you help us meet these additional $7,500 in expenses so that we can make the most of the time that we are in New York?
