LA FECONDAZIONE ASSISTITA TRA EGUAGLIANZA E PATRIARCATO
Parole chiave:History of Philosophy, Ethics, Reproductive Technologies, IVF, Feminism, Patriarchy, Bioethics
AbstractI offer a feminist perspective on reproductive technologies according to which the ethical permissibility of such practices does not answer all normative questions; there is a further and possibly more fundamental question that needs to be addressed about the role that such technologies play within our social structures. Here I argue – using the example of IVF-with-ROPA, a recent development that allows lesbian couples to share biological motherhood – that reproductive technologies perpetuate prejudices about the value of biological ties and therefore, far from challenging patriarchal oppression, those practices reinforce the discriminatory status quo.
