Abstract [en]

Since the rise of the new wave of feminism in the 1960s, issues concerning the body have been at the heart of the challenge posed by women's movements. The female body has always been a contested site, subject to state policies regulating its procreative and sexual capacities, as well as its (in)violability. Violence against women was often condoned by state authorities as a family affair, and the control of women was generally delegated to private patriarchal authority. Women's bodies have been part of a broader imaginary about national vitality and served as markers of national belonging. They figure as 'materialization' of the imagined community of the nation and its borders (Yuval-Davis, 1998). Women's bodies were the cornerstone of their 'natural' otherness and exclusion from the rights of citizenship. It is, therefore, not surprising that women's movements across Europe (and elsewhere) had bodily integrity on the top of their agenda, leading to concrete demands on a whole range of body issues. The issue of bodily integrity lies at the core of the concept of bodily citizenship, which is concerned with guaranteeing that the individual is autonomous and free from external intervention in relation to decisions about her (or his) body.

The classic formulation of citizenship rights has not included bodily or sexual rights; in feminist scholarship on citizenship the concept of bodily citizenship is also underdeveloped (e.g. in Phillips, 1991a; Siim and Squires, 2008). Our research could therefore not depart from a fully developed theoretical framework, though there was some previous work from which we could proceed.

Abstract [en]

In comparative surveys Poland is classified as a country where embryo research is prohibited. The starting point for this article is that such a classification is incorrect. It can be attributed to Poland’s fairly complex legal situation involving the concept of the “conceived child”, which has been the legal term for the embryo since the “war on abortion” in the 1990s and the lack of regulations concerning assisted reproductive technologies (ART). The aim of this study is to explain how the high moral and legal status of the embryo is compatible with the politics of non-decisions. The lack of regulations implies that Poland de facto functions as a country with a permissive policy design. In short, I argue that the abortion struggle has been decisive in forming the public sphere and established a hegemonic paradigm of “public morals,” thus hindering a policy-oriented discussion on bioethical dilemmas. This is compounded with a limited policy-making capacity, which makes it extremely difficult to decide on contentious issues and reinforces strategies of evading the issue altogether. This is particularly true within the biomedical policy field where specialized forms of expertise are required. An attempt to activate an “informed” discussion was made by the leftist government in 2004 enacting a so-called “societal consultation” on the use of human embryonic stem (ES) cells for research, which was triggered by Poland’s accession to the European Union. Although this consultation process was at least partly able to enhance communication between pro-lifers and research advocates, it was not able to find a compromise, which would make legislature more feasible.
