  •  since the very primie (0+ / 0-)

    are basically fitted into as close a womb as possible to build
    we're starting to stretch the boundaries considerably if we base it on how young they can survive, unless you mean survive with no life support systems.

    •  That's a weird (0+ / 0-)

      way to look at it. What about the elderly on life support? Why not say unless you need no medical attention you are are not "alive"?

      If a human being can live it it is a life.

      •  soon, all fertilized eggs will be viable (0+ / 0-)

        if put into an artificial womb.
        does that make all eggs therefore fully human?
        our ethics are going to undergo much flux with the new abilities.  Did you see the uproar over the possible 3 parent offspring?

        •  Well that skirts the issue (0+ / 0-)

          that if a life is viable outside the womb, then it is "life". Science.

          A fertilized egg will not be viable outside the womb, real or artificial, until a certain time.
