Developing the first artificial womb ever in 2018! GET IN HERE AND BUMP THIS THREAD please!!!
How to make the first ever artificial womb with current technology?
(1) Disable the consciousness/higher brain functions in reproductive zygote cells
(2) Implant this in a surrogate mother (IVF treatment)
(3) 9 months later a braindead girl is born: its born braindead so its not human! Its medical research tissue!
(4) When this “artificial womb” is ripe it can be used to create more braindead artificial wombs or it can be implanted with the cells of a customer that wants to buy a child (IVF treatment)
How do we actually make this happen IRL?
(1) WHERE? What country will allow medically braindead newborns to be legally registered as “medical human tissue” with no human rights? What are the (ethical) rules?
(2) HOW? How to make the embryo braindead in a way that qualifies it to be legally registered as just research material?
(3) WHO PAYS? Financial issue: I don’t worry about this. Once we have a realistic solution for the above, we can count on donations and private investors (costs don’t have to be high <100.000$).
Why do we even need artificial wombs?
Pregnancy is a heavy burden on women. It ruins their bodies, health and renders them disabled and unable to work on their careers. This causes inequality between men and women. Pregnancy thus is a heavy burden on the economy and freedom of women.
Artificial wombs also allow barren and old women to safely have a child of their own without any of the risks, saving them from a life as a crazy cat lady that screeches about feminism on street corners.
All biomedical researchers are asked to please drop their two cents on the matter!
