My cultural artifact is the controversy between Indiana State laws and planned parenthood. Opponents of Planned Parenthood do not want government fundings to help sustain the program. This relates to Foucault’s statement on bio power and how the government wants to regulate America’s birth rate without the voice of the individuals. Planned Parenthood is mostly for low income women, and without it low income women do not have a better opportunity when regulating their sexual health. From this controversy, I can see the overall systems of subjection through gender and income. Through hegemonic laws, populations can be controlled. From there, I will talk about Edelman’s statement on reproductive futurism and how Native American women were forced to be sterile.
