The Bible interprets the pain of a woman’s pregnancy and childbirth as the punishment of Eve for stealing the forbidden fruit, trying to persuade women to accept it as predestination.
Women have always been passive in the matter of childbirth. Because of the different biological make-up of men and women, the ability to bear children has not helped women to gain more benefits, but has become a burden that limits their development.
With the advancement of technology and medical treatment, this has separated women’s sexuality from their reproduction. To this day, a woman’s body is still not under her control. Men want to control women’s virginity to ensure the inheritance of private property, the state wants to interfere with women’s wombs as the needs of the economy and warfare change, and religion defines the moral code of the female body to ensure its authority. Is the control of a body that appears to be one’s own really in one’s hands?
