*New Release*

Defiant Birth: Women Who Resist Medical Eugenics
Melinda Tankard Reist

'In the face of widespread discrimination against the disabled and a eugenic 
culture which pathologises disability and crushes diversity, comes a new 
book which radically challenges the status quo.

Defiant Birth: Women Who Resist Medical Eugenics, tells the personal stories 
of women who have given birth despite medical expectations - women who were 
told they shouldn't have babies because of a perceived disability in 
themselves or some imperfection in the child. They have confronted the 
stigma of disability and in the face of silent disapproval and even open 
hostility, had their children anyway, in the belief that all life is 
valuable and that some are not more worthy of it than others.

This is a book about women who have dared challenge the utilitarian medical 
model/mindset. Disparaged and treated as pariahs for departing from accepted 
medical wisdom they have chosen non-compliance with medical/social prejudice 
and defiantly said yes to their babies, and no to the cult of perfection.'
