Abstract

Bereaved parents who have undergone feticide are reluctant to participate in a joint interview. Barthes' intertextuality approach is used to examine the texts of their separate interviews in order to arrive at an interpretive understanding of this phenomenon. Our results indicate that socially constructed gender roles and medical-biological and economic constructs, shape the parents' perceptions and actions. Both men and women behave based on the similarities with their partner and perceive any differences as a threat. The proposal to take part in a joint interview was perceived as a danger to the agreed-upon socially constructed views. Implications are presented.
