NRT's...the contradictions of choice: the common ground between disability rights and feminist analyses
A summary report of a conference held on November 10-12, 1994, co-sponsored by DAWN Canada and the National Action Committee on the Status of Women (NAC). Both organizations were troubled by the use and proliferation of new reproductive technologies (NRT), particularly genetic technologies, and their potential to entrench and perpetuate disability-based discrimination and the inequality of women. Reproductive technologies have the potential to impose conditions on, and alter significantly, the reproductive choices of all women. It not only has the potential to restrict a woman's reproductive choice to have a child with a disability, but also perpetuates the belief that disability is bad and to be avoided. These two issues are inextricably linked, hence the conference theme was selected that acknowledged the need to analyse genetic technologies from both a disability rights and a feminist perspective.
