Baby M (1988) TV Movie

Mary Beth Whitehead, the genetic mother, was artificially inseminated with William Stern's sperm, becoming surrogate mother of the child. Despite what was stated in the surrogacy contract, Mr. Stern's wife, Elizabeth, was not infertile, but rather she had multiple sclerosis and was concerned about potential health implications of carrying a child.
Mary Beth Whitehead later wrote a book about her experience. Additionally, an Emmy-award winning 1988 television movie about the case was featured, starring Jobeth Williams as Whitehead.
