Sacred Bond raises some of the most fundamental questions about human reproduction. It challenges gender roles in reproduction from every point of view: biological, psychological, moral, historical and legal. As is typical of Dr. Chesler, she is part of many of the stories she writes about. The case of Baby M. is no exception. She comes down strongly on the side of Mary Beth Whitehead, a 28 year old married mother of two children, who signed a surrogacy contract with an older married, couple who could not have children together. She helped the distraught surrogate mother in her efforts to secure custody of Baby M.
