This concluding chapter offers a more in-depth discussion of the links between the women's narrated experiences and Israeli nationalism, Jewish religion, and the type of civic maternalism particular to Jewish-Israeli culture. It then looks at the ways the ethnography reflects on some of the main theoretical concerns surrounding surrogacy and on the implications for state control of reproduction more widely. Finally, it suggests ways in which the data that emerge from this study might contribute to more informed public policies on surrogacy around the world.
