What lengths should people with fertility issues go to in order to have children?
This is the first book of its kind-internationally-to focus on the assisted reproduction industry and examine not only its rates of success and failure, but also the long-term effects of the procedures on mother and child. The evidence is damning and beyond reasonable doubt: in vitro reproduction can harm the unborn child and have serious repercussions on the mother's health. The risks are higher in aggressive in vitro fertilization. Clearly written, without medical and other jargon, Politics of the Womb squarely confronts what has today become the business of baby-making. A must-read for all women and men examining their reproductive options.
