Family Planning and an Ethic of Well-Being
This chapter relates the history of abortion and family planning as told by Greek professionals who work in medicine, psychology, and demography. Family planning was introduced to Greece as a means of modernity. The chapter demonstrates how its ideology and methodology join other development projects in encouraging modern subjects who think for themselves to view social conventions, morality, religion, and custom as impediments to the rational realization of personal desires and self-preservation. This chapter provides critiques of the gender neutrality embedded in family planning ideology and examines how women accustomed to viewing abortion in terms of an ethic of service receive family planning's attendant ethic of well-being.
