    Artificial wombs: The coming era of motherless births?

    Genetic Literacy Project ^ | April 22, 2022 | David Warmflash

    cientifically, it’s called ectogenesis, a term coined by J.B.S. Haldane in 1924. A hugely influential science popularizer, Haldane did for his generation what Carl Sagan did later in the century. He got people thinking and talking about the implications of science and technology on our civilization, and did not shy away from inventing new words in order to do so. Describing ectogenesis as pregnancy occurring in an artificial environment, from fertilization to birth, Haldane predicted that by 2074 this would account for more than 70 percent of human births. His prediction may yet be on target.In discussing the idea in his work Daedalus–a reference to the inventor in Greek mythology who, through his inventions, strived to bring humans to the level of the gods–Haldane was diving into issues of his time, namely eugenics and the first widespread debates over contraception and population control.
    Whether Haldane’s view will prove correct about the specific timing of when ectogenesis might become popular, or the numbers of children born that way, it’s certain that he was correct that tAt the same time, he was right that the societal implications are sure to be significant as the age of motherless birth approaches. They will not be the same societal implications that were highlighted in Daedalus, however . . .

    Technology developing in increments Where are we on the road to ectogenesis right now? To begin, progress has definitely been rapid over the last 20-30 years. In the mid 1990s, Japanese investigators succeeded in maintaining goat fetuses for weeks in a machine containing artificial amniotic fluid. At the same time, the recent decades have seen rapid advancement in neonatal intensive care that is pushing back the minimum gestational age from which human fetuses can be kept alive. Today, it is possible for a preterm fetus to survive when removed from the mother at a gestational age of slightly less than 22 weeks. That’s only a little more than halfway through the pregnancy (normally 40 weeks). And while rescuing an infant delivered at such an early point requires sophisticated, expensive equipment and care, the capability continues to increase . . .

    As much as I want to be hopeful this will be used for good. This is most likely gonna be used for bad(literally birthing pods for slave masters)

    At least the technology is interesting

    As much as I'm against women, I'm against this, because it's fooling Mother Nature, which isn't very nice. You start fooling around with nature, you're going to have something go wrong.
    It's a man's world and we need to take it by the throat and make it give us what we desire.

    Ectogenesis will be fiercely opposed by women. That will mean the end of their utility in the world.

    It will be used only by very wealthy men, but it's worth it: imagine telling Jeff Bezos he could have a son without being exposed to a nasty divorce!

    Good news. I think that even before 20 years we could have some kind of Artificial Womb if this idea become more popular among more men. And even some kinds of female bots after some more few decades.

    Just today I have read a news about Putin's politics trying to convince more Russian women to have more children, to reverse the low birth rates in Russia. This could be a good opportunity to create this technology faster and women could be even more useless in such societies.

    It is also giving the state the ultimate tool for population control.
    Parents have special power/authority over their children.

    Motherland that gives births... Well...

    Between letting Governments have this new power, and the current situation where women have most the of power over birthing and pro-creation, i think the current situation is the lesser of 2 evils.

    I will never marry.

    But i still believe women make better single parents than big goverment or big corporations.

    The lesser of 2 evils.
