About this book

Introduction

Beyond Conception is a feminist critique of the new reproductive and genetic technologies whose impact has been most apparent since the birth of the first 'test-tube' baby. The author finds that these technologies are not created in women's interest. Instead, they require the subordination of women to the interests of medical scientists, eugenicists, the burgeoning biotechnology industry and the family.
