Reproductive Ethics

GSF 375

This class examines the role that technology, globalization, late capitalism, ideas about health and ability, and advances in feminist theory play in human reproduction. It will investigate new frontiers of reproductive technology, and try to understand the many different ways of using and viewing interventions such as IVF, surrogacy, and embryo selection. We will examine popular ideas about 'the perfect child,' and how the issue of abortion intersects and competes with the quest for healthier, able-bodied children.
