Description

The process of ectogenesis is seen to be a scientific interruption to the natural birthing process for the mother. With ectogenesis comes much controversy because it suggests that a woman will not have to endure the natural processes of gestation. A. Huxley has written an abundance of controversial facts about ectogenesis in A Brave New World. Can the future of ectogenesis bring together the divisiveness of conservatives and feminists? According to an article written on Reproductive Rights about ectogenesis, Samantha Allen quotes that feminists believe that the separation of gestation from a woman’s body will have earth-shattering consequences for the contemporary feminist movement. The development of artificial wombs may rein havoc on women being that it debases women by replacing one of their most unique natural abilities with man-made technology. Conclusively, by removing gestation from a woman through the future of ectogenesis, conflicts between politics, evolutional science, and cultural traditions will inevitably cause a modern culture war.
