Power, certainty, and the fear of death.


Reproductive technology has been poorly used because both health care providers and clients unrealistically expect it to prevent all death and uncertainty. Because of this we often get the risks, side effects, and inaccurate information without benefits. Poorly used reproductive technology also deskills both providers and clients. Used realistically and controlled by women--birthing women and midwives--this technology can be of great benefit to us and our children.
