Given the ease Reproductive Interventions | 29 with which vasectomies could be performed, taking a competent surgeon just ten to fifteen minutes under local anesthesia, male sterilization was initially held up as ideal because it was an easy, minimally invasive surgery that cost the state little money. Indeed, vasectomies had been popular; in 1962 more than 70 percent of the sterilizations were of men. 22 The first vasectomy camp set up in 1970 had 40 operating booths where 15,005 men were sterilized, which was an all-­India record for the era.

16 In 1966 vasectomies and tubal ligations were introduced into state-­sponsored birth control programs. 18 And finally, abortions were legalized in 1971 through the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act in a partial gesture toward population control. Yet none of this explains why female sterilization became the most common form of “birth control” in India. Why female sterilization? A cursory examination of “family planning” in India shows that female sterilization was not necessarily the mainstay of population control programs.

Today IVF is remarkably commonplace. Though the separation of fertilization and pregnancy, and the resultant countless cycles of in vitro fertilizations that have been practiced on women’s bodies around the world since 1978, have not completely demystified conception, they have contributed to a better understanding of the processes involved. The complexity of conception has been carefully studied, broken down into its components, specific processes parsed and subcontracted out, and finally reengineered back together into an embryo that can be grown into a baby nine months down the road.
