The Impact Of Environmental Factors
While this might be a little controversial, artificial wombs will be able to offer us a ton of information worthy of study. Since humans will be able to use them, it is likely that we will have already proven we can do it with other species too. Due to this, we’ll be able to study animals and see how environmental factors impact the normal development of an animal. Things like pollutants, medications, toxins, and much more could impact fetal development. By removing these potential factors and only ever keeping the wombs in a controlled, sterile environment…we’re eliminating potential issues. This will be useful to see in animals first but it can then be a wonderful study to see how the wombs impact humans. Will removing environmental factors and exposure have an impact on our development? A study is needed here.
