Person of the Week
ABC News – Peter Jennings
For Mr. Cassidy’s accomplishments in the Baby M case and his participation in the stirring international debate over surrogacy which that case inspired, Harold Cassidy was selected by ABC World News and Peter Jennings as the “Person of the Week,” which aired on February 5, 1988. One person in the world was selected for that honor each week. Usually the honor was reserved for world leaders. The World News Person of the Week video appears below, just as it was broadcast in 1988.
