In order for new reproductive technologies to improve the health and well–being of women, they must be acceptable and accessible. Therefore, it is imperative to learn not only about the technology, but also about the individuals for whom it is intended. In Current Reproductive Technologies 2ed, the focus is put on multiple determinants that influence the acceptability of reproductive technologies as wall as the policies, and political and legal implications associated. Topics included personal and contextual barriers to use, limited access for low income women and minorities, and the social controversy surrounding the topic as a whole.
