Scientists Create Plastic Bag to Grow Babies In

This is interesting....and will no doubt cast further conversation on abortion and the question of WHEN a baby actually becomes a human being with rights.

Scientists have created an "artificial womb" in the hopes of someday using the device to save babies born extremely prematurely.
So far the device has only been tested on fetal lambs. A study published Tuesday involving eight animals found the device appears effective at enabling very premature fetuses to develop normally for about a month.
"We've been extremely successful in replacing the conditions in the womb in our lamb model," says Alan Flake, a fetal surgeon at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia who led the study published in the journal Nature Communications.
"They've had normal growth. They've had normal lung maturation. They've had normal brain maturation. They've had normal development in every way that we can measure it," Flake says.
Flake says the group hopes to test the device on very premature human babies within three to five years.
So let's suppose a 10 week old fetus is delivered and placed in this bag.  The next day the woman decides she no longer wants the baby because it would disrupt her lifestyle or maybe she says she can't afford "it"....would she then have the right to take the baby out of the bag and kill it?
After all, today she currently has the right to kill her 10 week old fetus.
No doubt these plastic bags growing babies could certainly work in our favor in arguing that HUMAN LIFE begins at conception.
