    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;The catholic bio-politics, in recent years, addressed a variety of issues. In this contribution&lt;br&gt;
I focus specifically on assisted reproduction and stem cell research in order to&lt;br&gt;
analyse the Catholic neo-feminist discourse, and the complex interplay of discursive&lt;br&gt;
arenas. Namely, I focus the attention on the reconfiguration of religious discourse&lt;br&gt;
in terms of attention to feminism and gender rights, on the one side, and discursive&lt;br&gt;
opportunity structures in terms of venues’ opportunities and constraints on the other.&lt;br&gt;
The analysis underlined two main elements. First of all, in relation to the process of&lt;br&gt;
judicialization of politics, the analysis pointed out the different opportunities and constraints&lt;br&gt;
characterizing the different venues. Namely, judicialization of politics and venue&lt;br&gt;
shopping are not favourable the same way for all the actors. Second, a neo-conservative&lt;br&gt;
frame of revolutionary maternity gained large room in the Italian political sphere, and it&lt;br&gt;
is likely to gain even more resonance in light of the current debate on surrogacy, related&lt;br&gt;
to the never-ending discussion on the forms of regulation of same-sex couples in Italy.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
