Q1. Do you think that the Sterns did something morally impermissible by asking Mary Beth Whitehead, the surrogate mother, to yield the parental rights of Baby M to the Sterns? Or do you think that Mary Beth Whitehead did something morally impermissilbe by trying not to follow the terms of their contract?
Q2. In 1988, regarding the Baby M case, the New Jersey Supreme Court said that paying money for surrogacy is “illegal, perhaps criminal, and potentially degrading to women.” Do you agree with this? Why or why not?
