Unraveling the Fertility Industry: Challenges and Strategies for Movement Building
An international consultation hosted by Sama Resource Group for Women and Health in New Delhi between 22 and 24 January 2010
In a time when tissues, gametes, technologies, as well as the people who seek these technologies, are crossing borders, concerns about the commercial, economic and ethical aspects of assisted reproductive technologies go beyond national or even regional boundaries. This consultation aimed to bring together a balanced representation of activists, scholars and researchers from different movements, networks, and organisations from across the world working on similar concerns.
Sama Resource Group for Women and Health published a report [PDF] on the consultation, which includes a summary of Marcy Darnovsky's presentation, "Commercialisation of Reproductive and Genetic Technologies: What
Lessons for Biotech Developments around the Globe?"
