Hey everyone! So this blog post is not about actual Baby Mamas. But if you have seen the move Baby Mama with Tina Fey, then you know it’s about a supposed infertile women using surrogacy to fulfill her dream of being a mother. Surrogacy is a relatively recent method of creating a family, and evokes mixed feelings and concerns from people. However, it can currently take years for a woman to be able to adopt a child, and if she can not get pregnant on her own, should she be forced to never have children?
Stem Cell Research has been a very controversial issue here in America in the past few decades. I was reading the Blog “Popular Science” when I came upon an article titled “Scientists use stem cells to generate human eggs in the lab”. So this could potentially mean that one day, scientists could remove stem cells from woman with fertility problems, and create and develop the eggs in a laboratory. This also could open up possibilities for research of the effect of nutrition and various medicines on the eggs.
I am neither agreeing or disagreeing with Stem Cell Research, I merely think it is fascinating that science has come so far in recent years. I’m also very interested in hearing what other people have to think about the future of Stem Cell Research, and various methods of becoming parents? Do you agree with all of these alternative methods to the traditional pregnancy? Or do you find it all a little Sci-Fi and out of the ordinary?
