dc.description.abstract Ectogenesis has been billed a revolutionary new advancement in technology that could have a profound impact in the area of human reproduction. My aim is to investigate the supposed benefits and objections to the development of human ectogenesis with a particular focus on potential consequences on the abortion debate and reproductive equality between men and women. I will conclude that arguments for human ectogenesis are not well supported and there fails to be a strong motivation to develop it further, other than as advancement to the area of providing better neonatal care for premature babies. en
