Winner of the 1998 C. Wright Mills Award from the Society for the Study of Social Problems The Making of the Unborn Patient: Social Anatomy of Fetal Surgery, Monica J. Casper, It is now possible for physicians to recognize that a pregnant woman's foetus is facing life-threatening problems, perform surgery on the foetus, and if it survives, return it to the woman's uterus to finish gestation. Although foetal surgery has existed in various forms for three decades, it is only just beginning to capture the public's imagination. These still largely experimental procedures raise all types of medical, political and ethical questions. Who is the patient? What are the technical difficulties involved in foetal surgery? How do reproductive politics seep into the operating room, and how do medical definitions and meanings flow out of medicine and into other social spheres? How are ethical issues defined in this practice and who defines them? Is foetal surgery the kind of medicine we want? What is involved in reframing foetal surgery as a women's health issue, rather than simply a paediatric concern? In this ethnographic study of the social, cultural and historical aspects of foetal surgery, Monica Casper addresses these questions. "The Making of the Unborn Patient" examines two important and connected events of the second half of the 20th century: the emergence of foetal surgery as a new medical specialty and the debut of the unborn patient.

UNBORN: Post Traumatic Thoughts of Loss, A Time to Mourn is the heart-rending story of one woman's grief for a child she longed for, but tragically lost. Author Niki Mylonas chronicles her explosion of emotion which manifested feelings of failure, despair, and isolation. Questioning the soul that came and 'left' her, Ms. Mylonas hits out at religion, the world, and nature itself for their cruelty, fueled by her frustration in her inability to conceive again. With time, Ms. Mylonas accepts that her 'child' had every good intension for 'touching earth' and learns the spiritual reasons for this loss that were, ultimately imperative to her personal growth. With the message that it's vital to release the 'ghosts' of the past in order to move forward, UNBORN is a healing, honest and deeply insightful account of pregnancy loss, and that such a devastating experience can create the most damaging psychological effects. Inspired by poetry, nature, music, her own intense feelings and life's complex and unpredictable challenges, Ms. Mylonas approached the writing of UNBORN as a cathartic and therapeutic form of healing, which she generously shares with the reader.

Unfortunately as Jonathon Daniel grows older, he creates complete havoc around himself, perplexing his parents and his doctors.

Tertullian of Carthage was the earliest Christian writer to argue against abortion at length, and the first surviving Latin author to consider the unborn child in detail. This book is the first comprehensive analysis of Tertullian’s attitude towards the foetus and embryo. Examining Tertullian’s works in light of Roman literary and social history, Julian Barr proposes that Tertullian's comments on the unborn should be read as rhetoric ancillary to his primary arguments. Tertullian’s engagement in the art of rhetoric also explains his tendency towards self-contradiction. He argued that human existence began at conception in some treatises and not in others. Tertullian’s references to the unborn hence should not be plucked out of context, lest they be misread. Tertullian borrowed, modified, and discarded theories of ensoulment according to their usefulness for individual treatises. So long as a single work was internally consistent, Tertullian was satisfied. He elaborated upon previous Christian traditions and selectively borrowed from ancient embryological theory to prove specific theological and moral points. Tertullian was more influenced by Roman custom than he would perhaps have admitted, since the contrast between pagan and Christian attitudes on abortion was more rhetorical than real.

Imagining The Fetus The Unborn In Myth Religion And Culture

In contemporary Western culture, the word "fetus" introduces either a political subject or a literal, medicalized entity. Neither of these frameworks does justice to the vast array of religious literature and oral traditions from cultures around the world in which the fetus emerges as a powerful symbol or metaphor. This volume presents essays that explore the depiction of the fetus in the world's major religious traditions, finding some striking commonalities as well as intriguing differences. Among the themes that emerge is the tendency to conceive of the fetus as somehow independent of the mother's body -- as in the case of the Buddha, who is described as inhabiting a palace while gestating in the womb. On the other hand, the fetus can also symbolically represent profound human needs and emotions, such as the universal experience of vulnerability. The authors note how the advent of the fetal sonogram has transformed how people everywhere imagine the unborn today, giving rise to a narrow range of decidedly literal questions about personhood, gender, and disability.
