From Embryo to “Pre-Born American”

(p.199) Conclusion
Brown Bodies, White Babies

Laura Harrison

NYU Press

The book concludes by linking the core themes of the text to the increasing hostility to women’s reproductive rights at the local, state, and national level. As feminist theory and practice have consistently urged individuals to recognize, personal or private matters such as ART use can in fact have enormous repercussions for how we think about, politicize, and adjudicate some of the most sacred aspects of our existence. The conclusion also revisits how intersecting identities shape one’s expectations of fertility services, access to such services, and one’s perception of his/herself as a consumer or (re)producer within this active market.

Keywords:   reproductive rights, feminist theory, ART, fertility services
