Abstract
This paper focuses on how surrogacy is to be valued in the transnational context, and what it means for surrogacy to be considered a form of paid, social reproductive labor. By social reproduction, we refer to the social processes and activities, such as child rearing and caring for dependents, that are necessary to uphold a productive society. Since these are complex and nuanced questions, and ones that are likely to need different answers in different countries and social contexts, this paper will not attempt to provide a neat answer. Rather, it analyzes these questions using a set of intellectual tools from philosophical bioethics, economics, and materialist feminism. We base our analysis on these literatures ..
