(p.286) 16 The Donation of Eggs for Research and the Rise of Neopaternalism
Law and Bioethics

Emily Jackson

Oxford University Press

This chapter reflects upon the issue of egg donation for research purposes, which has reignited some old debates about reproductive technologies' potential to exploit women, and breathed new life into the so-called ‘unholy alliance’ between feminists and pro-life activists. Drawing analogies with a similar shift in pro-life campaigners' strategic focus in relation to abortion, the chapter highlights and criticizes the development of a new sort of paternalism towards women's decision-making.

Keywords:   egg donation, pro-life, abortion, women, decision-making, paternalism
