Keywords: Procreation; Neoliberal Ideology; Surrogate Motherhood; Accumulation of Resources.

Biotechnological control over women’s bodies is intensified by the current economic progress characterized bay an incessant mechanism of accumulation of products. Post-Fordist economic liberalization, in convergence with the development of biotechnology, has produced a different formulation of human life and feminine generative potential, blocked within a neoliberal economic logic of reproductive production and accumulation, in the specific case of surrogacy. Postcolonial feminist thought – and ecofeminism – highlights the problems of a capitalist economy that pervades the feminine nature as a cog of the productive mechanism. Female body with the “surrogate motherhoodµ, becomes the object of a form of neocolonial exploitation, of the reproductive reification and the loss of self-determination.
