Written Material
Download

The author includes in her definition of New Reproductive Technology: abortion, contraception, amniocentesis, genetic screening, cloning, in vitro fertilisation, alternative insemination, sperm banks and storage of frozen sperm, genetic engineering, artificial wombs and techniques for determining the sex of the fetus. She maintains that the claims of the advocates for this technology i.e that it opens up a range of reproductive choices available to women and decreases the incidence of disorders in society, overshadow the implications for women's gender equality rights, and women's and men's disability equality rights.
