The intimacy of the act of conception, the inevitability of the hands of friends and strangers placed on a pregnant woman's belly, the controversy surrounding governmental policies on reproductive rights―all are aspects of contemporary human reproduction.
Deeply Private, Incredibly Public educates readers about cultural attitudes toward reproduction and pregnancy, changes taking place in reproductive medicine and technology, the meaning of reproductive power, and what the impact of reproduction and family might mean for them someday.
Sensitive and insightful, Deeply Private, Incredibly Public asks students to think critically about something that is at once a private and shared―and everyday―occurrence, but which also creates the opportunities for us to affirm how we value our women, men and children. In the worst of cases, human reproduction becomes the locus for some of the most disturbing instances of “control” in the modern age.
