Family planning: how Covid-19 has placed huge strains on all stages of surrogacy

Bringing a child into the world is a big decision. But now? With a surrogate and a travel ban? Could it be more complicated? The spectre of Covid-19 has cast its shadow over most things, including family planning – in the broadest sense of the term. Pregnant parents are facing dramatically different births than those they'd planned for; IVF, too, has been on hiatus; and anyone hoping to create a

Fear of Public Transit Got Ahead of the Evidence

The headline of the report read like the title of a 1950s horror film: " The Subways Seeded the Massive Coronavirus Epidemic in New York City ."

RIP Summer Camp

C amp Mishawaka was founded in 1910 in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, and its motto is "Safety, health, happiness." Last month, my younger brother, Steve Purdum, who has run the camp for three decades, made the pained and reluctant decision that, for the first time in 110 years—through two world wars, the 1918 flu, tuberculosis, and polio—there was no clear way to guarantee safety, health, or happiness

The Reckoning Will Be Incomplete Without Black Women and Girls

Updated at 10:32 a.m. ET on June 15, 2020. On May 25, George Floyd died, calling for his mother and gasping for breath.
