I hear that Mike and his partner have gone to Southeast Asia to find a surrogate. I really don't know what the two of them are thinking. Adopting a child is a good option too, why would they run that risk?

I just heard about it too. Surrogacy is still illegal in this country, no? There are only eight countries that accept the surrogacy process in the world currently, whilst still not being completely legal.
dāngrán ，bìjìng dàiyùn qiānshè de céngmiàn tài guǎng ，cóng fǎlǜ dào kēxué lúnlǐ 、shèhuì zhèngyì dào zīyuán fēnpèi ，quán shì zuì ràng rén tóuténg de 。duìyú bù yùn de fūfù láishuō ，tāmen yòu jíxū zhè ge jìshù lái ràng jiātíng gèng wánzhěng ，suǒyǐ dàiyùn héfǎhuà shì yī gè pòqiè xūyào bǎishàng táimiàn lái tǎolùn de wèntí 。
Of course, given that there is a broad spectrum of things involved in surrogacy. From legality to scientific ethics, from social justice to resource distribution, it really makes your head hurt. For infertile couples, they really need this technique to make their families complete, so the legalization of surrogacy is an issue that urgently needs to be discussed in the public arena.

Yeah, in terms of the power of the surrogates to make decisions about their own lives, feminists have always hoped for the legalization of surrogacy. They emphasize the complete autonomy that women should have in making decisions about their own body. They think that, for whatever objective, women should be able to make their own autonomous choices on the basis of their own thinking, including choosing to be a surrogate mother.
Each lesson is centered around a natural dialogue with key vocabulary directly prepared and translated for your use. You can also listen to each sentence as an individual recording to improve your listening and comprehension skills.
