The Political Geographies of Pregnancy

As reproductive power finds its way into the hands of medical professionals, lobbyists, and policymakers, the geographies of pregnancy are shifting, and the boundaries need to be redrawn, argues Laura R. Woliver. Across a politically charged backdrop of reproductive issues, Woliver exposes strategies that claim to uphold the best interests of children, families, and women but in reality complicate women's struggles to have control over their own bodies. Utilizing feminist standpoint theory and promoting a feminist ethic of care, Woliver looks at the ways modern reproductive politics are shaped by long-standing debates on abortion and adoption, surrogacy arrangements, new reproductive technologies, medical surveillance, and the mapping of the human genome.

"Neatly reviews many of the major dramas and dilemmas that, thirty years after the federalization of women's 'choice,' continue to bedevil policymakers and ordinary people. But it also moved me, and will move others, to wake up and test its conclusions." Rickie Solinger, Women's Review of Books "An important challenge to the rush to accept technological breakthroughs as progress. It depends on how they are practiced and who has authority." Barbara Burrell, Rhetoric and Public Affairs
