Women have played quite a significant role throughout the long history of humanity and its development whether it be by giving birth to the next generations or through their contribution to political, economic, and social evolution. Despite this women have historically been seen as inferior to their biological counterparts. Numerous efforts have been put to improve women's position in society and the realization of their reproductive rights is one such approach that enables them to take charge of their bodies and destiny and to achieve true gender equality. In today's knowledge economy, emerging technologies have proved to be an extraordinary tool for promoting and protecting women's reproductive rights. These technologies have had a significant impact on women's reproductive rights, particularly their reproductive healthcare rights. This paper examines the potential that these technologies carry as well as the perils associated with the incorporation of these technologies in the healthcare sector. The authors have also tried to put forward recommendations on how these emerging innovations may be regulated to fully utilize their potential and minimize the risk associated with their use.
