CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition

Having documented for a decade the techno-scientific and socio-political advances of human artificial reproduction, the authors return here to some of the stages of the debate, particularly among “progressives.” What do the activists of the Feminist International Network of Resistance to Reproductive and Genetic Engineering of the 1970s and 1980s have in common with the ecofeminism of Françoise d’Eaubonne and the current support of the Greens for neofeminist and LGBT demands? While opposition to the technification of human reproduction now offends, this article reminds us of some of the foundations of ecologist thought: living beings are not manufactured, they are born; one cannot be an ecologist and anti-industrialist without fighting the technocratic stranglehold on reproduction, which paves the way for eugenics: without fighting any artificialization of child production.
