Equal Opportunity and the Case for State Sponsored Ectogenesis

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Ectogenesis refers to the artificial gestation of a fetus outside the womb, beginning either from conception or soon afterwards, and continuing until viability. Despite certain advantages for women s reproductive liberty, feminist groups remain divided regarding the desirability of current and future assisted reproductive technologies, including ectogenesis. This book explores one feminist perspective, arguing that the current requirements for gestation and childbirth impose unjust burdens on women, physically, socially and financially. As a result, the ideals of equal opportunity demand continued research into ectogenesis, such that in the future women might have the option to be liberated from these burdens when seeking to start a family.
