Surrogacy: Surrogate Agency specializing in Surrogacy and Gestational Carrier Arrangements. Family Building with surrogates., 11 Aug 2014 [cached]
Abby Lippman, a professor of epidemiology at McGill University, described surrogacy as a kind of biological colonialism. "Surrogacy is not a solution to poverty," she said.
Commodifying women's reproductive systems comes at a human cost, Lippman said. "She's paid for services she has rendered in growing that baby. In that sense, she has a major impact on the baby that is born, yet she is treated as having a minimal - if any - role during the process," Lippman said. "There's no dignity in the exchange."

Responses to the final report by the Romanow Commission on the Future of Health Care in Canada - DAWN Ontario: DisAbled Women's Network Ontario [cached]
Abby Lippman, Professor of Epidemiology at McGill University and Co-Chair of the CWHN notes, for example, that the Report's recommendations on a national prescription
drug program do not go far enough, addressing only acute health care requirements, "To meet the needs of most women more than 'catastrophic' situations must be covered in a comprehensive pharmacare program".
The CWHN also believes that the report fails to focus meaningfully on measures that address health promotion and disease prevention, highlighting only methods of treatment and intervention, which are often costly and inefficient. Lippman states that "while we welcome attention to the provision of primary care, this seems to assume preventive approaches based on changes by individuals rather than on structural changes that will promote the diverse health needs of all women in Canada". Lippman also notes that the report does not address the impact of economic and social disparities on individual health status, "Government programs and policies should require health impact assessments and programs that address structural inequities", Lippman concludes.
