Body Autonomy During Pregnancy: Where Did It Go?
|dc.contributor.author||Ophardt, Brooke A.|
|dc.description.abstract||This paper takes a personal yet informative look at body autonomy during pregnancy, examining the laws that remove autonomy from pregnant women with a look at how that affects women overall. The paper uses feminist theory to examine how the commodification of reproduction has stripped women of their body autonomy during their pregnancies and argues how women throughout history have largely been valued only for reproductive purposes.|
