There's also a danger such devices might be used coercively. States
could theoretically require women getting abortions to put their fetuses
into artificial wombs, says Scott Gelfand, a bioethicist at Oklahoma

avoid maternity leave, he says. Insurers could require use of the device
to avoid costly complicated pregnancies and deliveries.
