Ever since the Home Pregnancy Test in August,
the young technophobic fetus could feel itself being put under endless scrutiny.
Fetus tried everything:
grinding along to Mom's favorite Elvis records
not kicking for extended periods of time

But succeeded only in prompting increased foreign surveylance into its terretory. After
four ultrasounds an amniocentesis three blood tests
fetus decided it was time to escape.
But clearly, all was not well outside the womb.

Adele Clarke:

Modern approaches to reproductive bodies and processes were and remain centered on achieving and/or enhancing control over those bodies and processes... Technoscientific capacities for intervening have quite dramatically expanded from control over reproductive processes to manipulation of both processes and products.
