“Fetal lambs lived for weeks in a fluid-filled bag. Tests to help premature babies could begin in three years.” The topic of artificial wombs is quite controversial. The recent improvements in ectogenesis create a push for this topic to be debated about more often than the past. Of course artificial wombs pose a plausible argument. The removal of risk in a pregnancy is clear, yet is it ethical? The same question is posed in Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World.” With the creation of fertilized zygotes outside of the human body, and embryos assembly line fashion, growing in rows of bottles, this dystopian world takes a sharp turn towards one of the two sides in this ongoing arguement. The Director of the London Hatchery and Conditioning Centre speaks directly about the topic when he says to the children, “Take ectogenesis. Pfitzner and Kawaguchi had got the whole technique worked out. But would the Governments look at it? No. There was something called Christianity. Woman were forced to go on being viviparous,” (p. 46). This quote displays the underlying reason for why most scientifical advancements are swept under the rug. The ideals of tradition and religion hold us back from becoming too progressive, yet many hold different opinions on the level of progressivism of which is to be acceptable. In the related article it states, “U.S. Food and Drug Administration... thinks the device could be tested in a neonatal ward within three to five years.” This could lead to chaos within our society. Huxley warned with his book, that the idea of ectogenesis gives excessive amounts of control to the government and can lead to the demotion of the valued “family” we cherish today. With artificial wombs being created, how long will it be before all children are grown in a plastic bag filled with amniotic fluid and not given a distinct set of parents? Let’s hope we never find out.
