Parsing the postmenopausal pregnancy: a case study in the new eugenics
Elizabeth Siegal Watkins, pages -

Abstract

This article explores the increasing phenomenon of postmenopausal pregnancy as indicative of the shaping of biotechnology by the power of the individual consumer. Personalised market eugenics is created by the combination of privileging of genes over environment, pronatalism targeted at women, and a market environment that responds to privileging and wealth: this is the privileging of the genes of the privileged.
