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?

I want to offer you my sincere gratitude for your generosity. Many gave larger gifts than they ever had before, and many others gave for the very first time. Thank you, thank you.

All that we’ve been able to accomplish in 2016 (and since our founding in 2000) is because of individuals and foundations who have given generously and faithfully. Please remember The Center for Bioethics and Culture in your end-of-year giving.

Thank YOU and Happy New Year!

In short, we make documentary films because they work. They clearly communicate the issues, the concerns that drive them, and the problems that need to be addressed. And they make a real difference to our shared human future.

As we come to the end of 2016, will you help us start 2017 on solid financial footing so that we are well positioned to continue our documentary film and other work? Please consider making a gift of $5, $10, $25, $50, $100 or whatever you are able. Thank you in advance!

YOU make THIS possible

One thing we know without a doubt is that the work we do would be impossible without your support! We are a small but high-impact organization because of you. Please know how thankful every member of the CBC team is for your partnership with us and for your help in the successes over this past year (and years!).

As I look back over the past 16 years since I founded the CBC, I can hardly begin to tell you about all the unexpected doors that have been opened to us. Let me highlight some of our successes in documentary filmmaking, legislative efforts, and cultural engagement.
