Imagine the possibility of a woman being able to terminate a pregnancy… without killing the child? Technical and biological barriers at present aside, only a surrogate or Tleilaxu Axlotl tank would be an alternative for the child… at least until artificial wombs come along.
“The idea of growing babies outside the body has inspired novels and movies for decades.
“Now, research groups around the world are exploring the possibility of artificial gestation. For instance, one group successfully grew a lamb in an artificial womb for four weeks. Australian researchers have also experimented with artificial gestation for lambs and sharks.
“And in recent weeks, researchers in The Netherlands have received €2.9m ($4.66m) to develop a prototype for gestating premature babies.”
Bodily autonomy AND the protection of innocent life?
What could be even better?
The mass gestation of genetically engineered catgirls suitable for domestic ownership, of course!
A little mood music…
