Abstract

In 2010s Japan, there has been a panic about people's lack of knowledge about infertilituy and human reproduction. Professionals in the field of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive medicine have contributed to the panic through so-called “egg aging” (ransi no rouka) campaign. This research project investigates such unscientific knowledge that were used in the campaign to uncover (1) how it was made, used, and authorized and (2) how it affected public opinion and policies in Japan.
