A article came through my feeds yesterday on artificial womb development, and how it is already beginning debate in medical ethics.
Artificial Wombs and surrounding controversy from Motherboard.
Of course there will be debate on the ethics of the technology- there were about heart transplants, but today its standard practice. The state of the art isn't there yet but due to the pace of development, will be very, very soon. I have no doubt this technology will be mature and active within a few decades.
I was surprised to see mention of pushback by feminist thinkers on the topic, however. Is this a widely held feeling, or is it a case of a few fringe extremists being picked out just for the article? I guess the ultimate question is if childbirth is sacred enough an institution to the general feminist community to make it a consistent issue.
