It?s already been pushed into pregnancy, alcohol or other drugs, dangerous sports, falling down stairs etcetera.

Gwynne: Wait until we have effective artificial wombs (the tech is getting close)
and then are able to transplant embryos to an artificial womb instead of aborting.
Now THAT will set off a whole new set of interesting questions and reactions: If
social services can remove a child from abusive parents, could they enforce a
transplant of an embryo to an artificial womb if the mother is an addict, drinker,
smoker, etc?
