Brave New World: UK ethicist wants women to abandon motherhood, use artificial wombs


In remarks that critics have said are disturbingly reminiscent of Aldous Huxley’s famous dystopian novel “Brave New World,” a UK ethicist has argued that since pregnancy causes “natural inequality” between the sexes, women must be liberated from the “burdens and risks of pregnancy” through the use of “ectogenesis”, or artificial wombs.

“Pregnancy is a condition that causes pain and suffering, and that affects only women. The fact that men do not have to go through pregnancy to have a genetically related child, whereas women do, is a natural inequality,” writes Dr. Anna Smajdor in an article that recently appeared in the Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics.

In her Defense of Ectogenesis, published online December, 2011, Smajdor construes pregnancy as a “medical problem, along with other conditions that cause pain and suffering.” Smajdor is Lecturer in Ethics at the School of Medicine, Health Policy and Practice in the University of East Anglia.

kimewest's analysis:
God's design is neither a state of "inequality" or a "medical problem" but rather a gift from a wise and good God.

To be Honest.

I really don't think all this technological advancement will be put into place before the Rapture. The forces of darkness are running out of time and they know it... but this article still is very disturbing and a frightening concept to grasp. Keep in mind that "inventing of evil things" is an offense to God. It's the intent that makes this a "Sign of the Times".

Challenging God

This is clearly challenging God and His curse on Eve and therefore all women for allowing herself to be deceived.

Genesis 3:16- To the woman he said,
“I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing;
with pain you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband,
and he will rule over you.”

Getting closer to the end, therefore getting closer to the new beginning with Christ Jesus...the world is going to continue to tear down the Word of God and His truth in a more black and white manner.

Im new by the way. names Andrew. Been following this site for awhile and decided to join about a week ago. I am a fellow brother in Christ who sees the signs, and looks skyward daily. I prayed I could find a news source of current events that were biblical and discerning. God brought me here. Amen.
