In my recent post about the earthquake, I mentioned that I'd written a short sci-fi story about the aftermath of a natural disaster. In the same story, set in the future, my character argues with her husband about reproduction. He wants a natural birth, whereas she wants to make use of technology, to donate their DNA and have the child born in a gesterium. It becomes the next frontier of female equality: whether a woman has the right to work, to vote, to terminate a pregnancy, and now, to have a child without giving birth.

So I was a little entertained when a couple of days ago, I saw this article: Making babies without eggs may be possible, say scientists.

Art... life...
