Abstract

This project analyzes the interplay of science, capitalism and patriarchy as they influence the individual female choice to use reproductive technologies. The objectivity of science, particularly medicine represented as science, is criticized. The forms of oppression rooted in both patriarchy and capitalism are investigated in terms of their influence on a woman's ability to make a decision about reproductive technologies free from social and consumerist pressures.
