Hands Off Our Ovaries and International Woman's Day

I had a crazy day yesterday and was saving this site to post on International Woman's Day - a day I don't celebrate. But anyway, this site was launched yesterday and is an interesting contrast to other events organised.

Hands Off Our Ovaries has a simple manifesto - because losing even one woman's life is too high a price to pay.

More details -
Biotechnological research and development affects women more directly than men. In the case of human embryonic cloning, women’s health and safety have already been affected—adversely. Sadly, there have been too many instances of coercion and deception, and violations of informed consent. Left uncontrolled, research demands will place undue burdens on young, poor women. We deserve a biotechnology that is not degrading and destructive to women's health. The ends do not justify these sorts of means.
