FREEZING OUR BABIES

In Silicon Valley there is a new requirement needed when you want to work at one of the most technological influenced companies in the world. As a woman you have to make the choice to freeze your oocytes before you start working at companies like Facebook or Apple, and the good thing is: they will pay it for you.

Is the technology overtaking our choices in life? Is it good that we can stop nature and our biology because of the dreamjob we want? Is it even possible for companies to demand from you that you wait to have kids untill you’re not working at that company anymore.

I think the technology is controlling our lives more than we actually have to. The way we choice to play  with our body like this and make our health more like an experiment makes me curious what will happen in the future.
