The control of birth is the most common bio-power throughout our human history, through which women’s body, especially womb, have been inserted into the machinery of country productivity. Even though feminism movement has improved the situation and liberated women with more freedom and human rights, the systemic control of birth and its oppression on women can still be found in many areas and countries.

In addition, the development of bio-technology, such as DNA sequencing, has empowered the system to monitor more human body data. As a result, more and more institutions and companies, like UK BioBank and 23andMe, have been collecting and storing individuals’ DNA data.
