It is that we human beings are in control of our own destiny, and there is nothing sacred or special about life itself.This is because we live in a world where science means we can manipulate everything ~ even the process of reproduction.
She wants us to drop all our prejudices about sex, sexual difference, reproduction and foetuses, and to allow science to develop in any way it chooses.
Yet, above all, is there not something sinister and joyless about the notion of going it alone when it comes to reproducing ourselves?
Modern science disagrees. It thinks there is nothing wrong with this
What appears to be a scientific exploration is actually a political tract, saying that we can do without a patriarchal, male-dominated society, do without Dad, without family, without any of the structures which have hitherto shaped the human destiny.
