A quiet revolution has been taking place during the past
three decades. The way that children enter families has changed
radically among upper middle class families. In the 1980s infertility
increasing became defined as a medical problem that could be solved with
assisted reproductive technologies (ART) rather than through adoption.
Asexual or ‘assisted conception’ involving medical technologies such as
in vitro fertilization and embryo transfers began to replace sexual
reproduction for infertile couples. Third parties, referred to as
surrogates are hired to assist individuals and/or couples who wish to
conceive and child with whom they share a genetic tie. This has resulted
in a ‘surrogate baby boom.’
Womb provides a critical introduction to the global surrogacy
market. A comparative analysis of the assisted reproductive technology
and surrogacy industry in Egypt, Israel, India and the United States
disentangles the intersecting roles of race, religion, class inequality,
religious law, and global capitalism. Gestational surrogacy challenges
the idea of ‘natural’ reproduction and of the meaning of parenthood.
What role should the state play in providing individuals and families
with access to reproductive technologies? This book concludes with a
discussion of ‘reproductive justice’.
