Ectogenesis, a process first described in 1924 by British scientist J.B.S Haldane, is the growth of mammalian embryos in artificial environments.He predicted that by 2074,nearly 70% of all human births will be "motherless".Reminds one of Gattaca or the human farms from Matrix doesn't it? Haldane was a friend of Aldous Huxley,who as you will of course know wrote the famous novel Brave New World. I thought that this is at least a century away,but I stumbled upon this futurist site(link) which claims that ectogenesis will be commercially available by 2034.This is why I would like to hear your opinion on this subject. Is this ethical? Will in a hundred years sexual reproduction seem barbaric?
But sure as hell the wingnuts and greens's gonna find it totally evel, as they do any kind of groundbreaking new technology (e.g. GMOs, surrogate maternity, in vitro fertilization, genetic screening of embryos before implantation and so on. I'm living in Europe, so I have ridiculously strict bio-"ethic" laws right here). Goddamn Luddist scum.--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 10:11, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
