A critical look at reproductive technology.

Making Babies

From a high tech marketplace in Paris, to the work being done at a fertility clinic in London, Ontario and a surrogacy centre in Los Angeles, Making Babies takes a critical look at reproductive technology and provides a chilling account of its development and use. Through interviews with doctors, drug salesmen, infertile women, surrogates, and social critics and feminist activists like Gena Corea, the film explores the origins and application of the technology and the dangers it may pose to women and to society as a whole.
