In our latest episode of RedRiver TV, we talk about the recent announcement by doctors from the Philadelphia Children's Hospital of their creation of an artificial womb. The process is still in its early stages, but the technology looks very promising. For mothers who are unable to conceive this offers a strong ray of hope. Also, we discuss what this means for society as a whole. There are some moral implications to grapple with as with all advances we make as a species. Feel free to read the full story for yourself. Let us know your thoughts on this?
