I am pleased to comment on the paper of Ms. Andrews. Although I will take a significantly different approach than hers, we are all indebted to her for attempting what may be an impossible task, i.e., giving the feminist perspective on the new reproductive technologies. There are a number of “feminist perspectives” on these highly emotional and personal issues. I see my primary task here as presenting an alternative one.
