IVF and Women's Interests: An Analysis of Feminist Concerns
Warren, Mary Anne
Bioethics. 1988 Jan; 2(1): 37-57.
Feminist objections to the new reproductive technologies are examined. The author argues that although these technologies entail significant risks and costs to women, help only a small minority, and do not address the underlying social causes of infertility, women's interests do not demand the rejection of research on and use of reproductive technologies. Their potential threat to female reproductive autonomy can be counteracted by protecting individual civil rights. Warren urges that women, as well as members of various racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups, be represented in decisions on reproductive technologies, participate in their development and funding, and supervise their provision.
