 About the Book 

International in scope, this book is a feminist response to the new reproductive technologies and the genetic engineering being used on women--test-tube fertilization, surrogacy, embryo flushing, sex preselection, and artificial hormones. It isMoreInternational in scope, this book is a feminist response to the new reproductive technologies and the genetic engineering being used on women--test-tube fertilization, surrogacy, embryo flushing, sex preselection, and artificial hormones. It is concerned with what these procedures mean for women and with the accountability of the medical scientists who have created the technology. Spallone argues that the result is the subordination of women to the interests of medical scientists, population planners, the family, and the burgeoning biotechnology industry. The book will be of compelling interest to all of us who are seeking a science and technology that respects the dignity of women and of all life on our planet.
