FiLiA meets: Jennifer Lahl


Ms. Lahl is founder and president of The Center for Bioethics and Culture Network.

Lahl made her writing and directing debut producing the documentary film Eggsploitation. Her other films include  Breeders: A Subclass of Women?, which focuses on surrogacy, Maggie’s Story, which follows one woman’s egg donation journey. Lahl’s latest feature film is #BigFertility .
