In that context what is often needed is access to long extant technologies making it possible for women to choose not to reproduce, and increasing, not decreasing the medicalization of reproduction. The United Nations’ Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women does give women extensive reproductive rights in Article 16, but these rights are in practice not secured in many countries in the world. Liberty, Effective Freedom and the Social Embedding of ART It is, as stated above obvious that the development in ART has produced an enormous increase in reproductive options and therefore also in those societies that allow a wide range of ART an increase in the negative liberties of people (here using negative liberty in the sense defined by Berlin as freedom from external constraint [2]).

G. g. facilitating the reproduction of lesbian couples or single women). There is thus little doubt that the development of IVF and subsequent ART has contributed significantly to the medicalization of reproduction, as has also been pointed out by numerous other writers [14].

It has, as discussed above increased reproductive liberty and the effective reproductive freedom of some, but it has done so in very specific ways.
