Imagine a near-future city, say London, where medical science has advanced beyond our own and a single-dose pill has been developed that, taken when pregnant, eradicates many common genetic defects from an unborn child. Hope Morrison, mother of a hyperactive four-year-old, is expecting her second child. She refuses to take The Fix, as the pill is known. This divides her family and friends and puts her and her husband in danger of imprisonment or worse. Is her decision a private matter of individual choice, or is it tantamount to willful neglect of her unborn child?… (mer)

Ingen/inga.

Disturbing look at how the nanny state could take over all aspects of life in the future.

Concerns a mother who is having second thoughts about taking 'the fix' which is a genetic cure all pill for an unborn child. Set a few years hence, Macleod covers the possibilities of surveillance in the home, monitoring of individuals and so on.

Slightly scary as I think we are part of the way there with the successive governments that we have had. ( )

Hope Morrison is pregnant with her 2nd child. She does not want to take 'The Fix', a safe and effective cure for genetic abnormalities in the growing fetus. Is Hope abusing her child? There are exemptions for those with religious exemptions, but Hope just wants her choice respected. In Ken MacLeod's latest near-future dystopia, Hope and her family are in for a world of hurt....

I don't respect the philosophical question here. There is no danger in 'the Fix'. This does not seem like a battle worth fighting. An insight perhaps into the mindset of anti-vaxxers, climate change deniers and creationists. I can't agree that these irrational preferences deserve the sympathetic treatment that Macleod provides.

An anti-nanny state screed in the guise of near-future sf, though very well-written and -executed. I might have only given this 3 1/2 stars if halves were allowed -- the preachy quality to the story knocks the quality down a little. ( )

In an if-this-goes-on UK, a pregnant woman doesn’t want to take the Fix, which will correct almost all known genetic flaws. While religious objectors are excused from the requirement, her objections aren’t religious; she just doesn’t want to do it. Also, while abortion is legal during a substantial part of pregnancy, fertile women have to wear rings that monitor their exposure to alcohol, drugs, cigarettes (even secondhand), etc. and deviations or even removing the ring can lead to social services intervention. And pending legislation requiring “safe workplaces” for fertile women will make it even harder for them to work (but working from home will be exempted, of course). Torture is a normal feature of routine interrogations, but it’s all very sanitary and no one talks about it in public. Oh, and the woman’s husband and young son may have the Sight, and her unborn child may also inherit it if she doesn’t take the Fix. (Yeah, that came out of left field.) While the characters provided a recognizable if dreary portrait of people making their way under a tyrannical, well-intentioned system, I never really engaged with them as characters rather than as McLeod showing how awful and corrosive an unlimited government is even when it purports to bind itself with the rule of law. The thing I found most striking was the portrayal of serious religious belief—including Christian belief—as something considered weird by the majority of citizens; this novel could not have been written by an American and a similar American dystopia would definitely have included more official Godliness.
