Artifical wombs being developed
November 16, 2019
Because what the world really, really lacks is a way to produce new humans, researchers have developed a prototype artificial womb (Animal cruelty warning: animal testing at link). No doubt gearing up for the Nobel prize like that asshole who developed test tube babies. It is supposed to be initially for preemies, but I doubt it will stop there. If nothing else, it will be a boon to people who want to push back the limits of abortion.

Those pods in the picture look like devices from an alien movie.

No way would I support something like this. The world is already over populated. Sometimes fetuses miscarry or are born prematurely. Could you imagine if later miscarriages were automatically shunted to these pods? The body rejects for a reason. Imagine the horror of miscarrying a deformed or severely sick fetus, and being forced by law or family to gestate it to maturity in one of these pods.

Imagine if a woman wants an abortion. Her family or the government can try to force her to gestate it in one of these alien pods, because if she's not forced to use her own body to fully grow the fetus, then abortion rights will go out the window. Who would care for and financially support the baby once it came out of the incubator?

These things are also an MRA's wet dream. Lots of them have ranted on blogs about their dream of no longer needing a woman to have kids. They also rant about having only male children to turn the world male.

These machines are a giant the world 'fail' on flames

That bad 80's Lifetime movie was right! Peace, I do agree with what you say in your post too.

One good thing that just might come out of all this is that women might be able to get doctors to do operations to prevent pregnancy without getting the "You will change your mind and sue me and I just bought a new Lexus" issue, knowing if women "changed their mind" they could grow babies in an overgrown Lava Lamp.

What a fucking waste of medical resources in a world that is already over-populated.

As an aside, that article needs an animal cruelty warning, as they are testing it on a lamb. I could not read it. The images were bad enough.

Can you imagine all the suffering we are inflicting on other species just so some dumbass couples, who are probably too old/sick/diseased to be breeding anyway, can experience their own DNA?

I'll say it, there is no shortage of children if you aren't some egomaniac who wants to perpetuate your own DNA. Fucking adopt already.

Reading stuff like this makes me hate humans even more. .

If it is indeed a fact we are having a lowering of global sperm count, I celebrate the idea of only the wealthy able to breed. That will mean a lower brat population overall.

Sorry, I'll add it.

I hope the sweet little lamb is given a surrogate ewe when it is born so it has a chance to live.

The lamb will either be slipped under a ewe or be raised by a human. Humans will want to determine the long term effects of raising a lamb out of the womb.

Breeding is the only job some poor people have of making a living.

two cents ¢¢

CERTIFIED HOSEHEAD!!!

people (especially women) do not give ONE DAMN about what they inflict on children
and I defy anyone to prove me wrong:

The selfish wants of adults outweigh the needs of the child.

If I want to hear the pitter-patter of little feet I'll put shoes on my pets.

Mankind and its needs (wants) are like unto a black hole. It devours all available resources and it never is full: it merely grows larger and demands more.

Definition of 'wealthy': Anyone who makes more/has more than you do.

Someone pointed out that I'm a realist. And all along I thought I was just a pessimist crossed with a cynic.

Entitlement, thy name is mooooooooooooooo

"Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove
they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen.
Add to this that, many of those who refuse or are unable to prove they are
citizens, will receive free insurance paid for by those who are.""

I am confused enough already. I do not need outside help.

For the moment, but the American safety net is going away, and all the brainless breeders and defectos will die in the streets.

I've never noticed people having much issue breeding as a species, so why do they need fake baby ovens? And I hope this doesn't sound like I'm trying to promote animal cruelty, but if this has to be a thing, I'd really like to see it used to help endangered mammals. Because we've got enough fucking people, which is also why we have animals dying that don't have to. But then that begs the question of the fate of those animals once they're born. Will they just die due to environmental destruction or poaching? Why spend $25 million to artificially grow an endangered animal just for it to die four seconds after it gets released?

I could see this leading to all kinds of fuckery in regard to abortion and miscarriage. People trying to preserve fetuses that would otherwise die and sticking them in incubators, and then presenting them to the women who aborted/miscarried a few months later when they're "born." I'm sure the idiot women who have four miscarriages a year and don't learn from it are peeing their pants in ecstasy over this idea, but for saner women, this is going to blur a lot of already questionable lines regarding bodily autonomy.

If you can't grow a fetus in your own uterus, there's a good reason for it.

Oh, you mean like that newest religious reicht claim that doctors can relocate ectopic pregnancies to the uterus? That's not medically possible (at the moment, I sure hope they don't figure it out), although they're no doubt willing to kill a lot of women in trying. With this artificial womb they'd want to relocate them there, nevermind that it's being designed to help preemies, not support an entire pregnancy (though no doubt the technology will be pushed in that direction).
