    this would be amazing. I don't know for certain how I really feel about it, but know, having lost mine when I was in my early 30's, and then finding the love of my life, it gave me pause for thought.

    Wouldn't their mother's wombs be past the prime age where they are able to give birth? Or is the age of a womb not the reason old women don't commonly give birth?
    How much more of a stretch would it be to transplant a womb into a male?

    That is amazing. Hopefully one day we can transplant wombs into pro life men and force them to endure childbirth.

    History of transplantation is an interesting read. Be reattaching limbs for centuries (presumedly with varying success heh.) But the Mr. Potato head reality of our bodies with how we can swap parts is interesting.

    What's ironic is that doctors will take heroic efforts to save unborn children in one room, and then abort healthy unborn children in the next.

    If this had been around 30-40 years ago a couple I knew could have had children, and my husbands ex-wife would not have had two miscarriages and two precarious births.

    This is good news. :)
