RE: Abortion in Britain: The Case for a New Approach
Austen’s coverage of this issue has been great. Also worth mentioning is the fact that increasing numbers of British women are using abortion as a method of birth control - four, five or more abortions. One important point he makes is about viability, which is putting science on the side of a lower limit. I wanted to ask, what about artificial wombs? It seems likely in a few years an embryo could be carried to term outside a woman’s body altogether - whatever we think about that as a procedure, it essentially means that a foetus becomes ‘viable’ or at least can survive from zero months. At that point a major part of the pro-abortion argument collapses completely.
