"Unborn mothers" on the horizon?
"Scientists announced [on June 30th] that they have been able to remove immature ovaries from four-month-old fetuses," continued the report. "The theory is that they can be stimulated in the test tube to go through the later stages of development before the creation of fully mature eggs." This prospect "raises grave ethical questions about the possibility of creating children whose biological mothers were never born. When a high-powered committee of British ethicists considered this possibility in the early 1990s it took the view that any child created by such a procedure would not be able to come to terms with the idea of deriving from aborted fetal tissue."
That "high-powered ethical committee" ignored the possibility that the children resulting from such a hideous procedure might object to the pre-natal murder of their mothers.
