"For radical feminists, then, the new reproductive technologies are particularly abhorrent for two reasons. First, they are a creation of a 'male science' which seeks to dominate nature rather than remain open to it…Second, the legal grounds on which the new reproductive technologies will be implemented stand on notions of individual rights, enlightened self-interest, and contract law-all of which radical feminists see as extensions of an inherently exploitive capitalist system."
