Martha Rosler, academic and video artist,
reads the strange case of Baby M,
an in-depth look at surrogate motherhood
and a discussion of Mary Beth Whitehead and Mr. Sperm.
Born to be Sold is a savage and funny analysis of women's bodies
as commodity and of class as determining factor
in the judicial choice of appropriate parents.
Intrinsic to this brilliant critique
lie the issues of media manipulation and bias.
