    I wonder if - after running tests on human babies - they will still be legally forced to abort them after 4 weeks to "prevent human suffering"?

    thx for this awesomely ha bisky vid i love this so much and i knew that stuff about glucose and thats why sugar isnt actually bad for people like its claimed

    if you dont have sugar in your body (not the all natural kind the actual sugar) you cant read the comment section *its GMOS HFCS that is horrible for people not sugar*

    2:05 - So the lambs were healthy and ready to be born, but instead of delivering them, the scientists murdered them? I don’t know which is worse, scientists or cooks…

    Abortion opponents will now claim even the mother's womb isn't necessary to the fetus. All wanted/unwanted pregnancies will be carried to 28 weeks and stuffed in bags in a Handmaiden Tale future.

    I don't see why they have to use animals. It wouldn't hurt to start using it to save human fetuses who would have died anyway without it that need help now.

    Am I the only one who feels this was almost a crazy scientific episode? Dont take me wrong its awesome all this science advances. But. It felt almost straight out of a mad scientist or crazy supervillian scientific... Also, it felt almost like some of the ideas I had in the past. Only thing could make it more crazy. Its if someone developes the suit I have in mind. Wich will make the need of food, sleep or even water obsolete. And with almost no cons

    Am I the only person that thought of the thylacine genome experiment and how the scientists in charge of the experiment were last reported to be looking for a surrogate mother for the potential clone? Think of the endangered and extincted species we could be saving or bringing back with this technology. If bringing back extinct animals isn't your thing, we could focus on saving the extremely critically endangered Javan and Sumatran rhinos.

    This is very exciting! My little girl was born at 26 weeks and weighed 1 lb 2 oz. She was on a ventilator for 4 weeks and ended up with chronic lung disease. Even though she's doing great now, this would've made her journey much less traumatic.
    I'm so thankful for modern medicine and scientific discoveries!

    to all who hear this we are all apart of an experience of thoughts and feels we simply are lucky to walk down the middle road because a perfect world will always be hard to reach but sadly we can easily fall in to chaos and disarray perhaps we too see that conflict breeds conflict and the easy way isn't all ways the best but everything has potential for great things fear is a great enemy we simply need to overcome to see the creation of a brighter future

    Wait wouldn't it be more ideal to not kill the lamb when it's ready to come out of the bag? Why do you need to dissect it to see if the stuff working? Keeping it alive seems like it'd be more valuable because then you could prove it actually can save lives of underdeveloped humans. Weird. Also, that kinda seems morally questionable if they don't have a good reason to do so...

    I read about this recently for school and I found it was so interesting. If you want to check out the article I found, go to science news. I believe the only issue with the premature lambs testing is the issue of lung damage and that if we were to need a baby human for testing, a mother would have to be present.

    so, in the future, women can use these bags to develops a baby anytime they want a child instead in their own wombs? I like the ideal. It can save a lot of wanted babys instead them ending up still born and the women that wanted them depress or suicidal.

    I don't quite like the expression "hitting the wall" because that's not really what it feels like, but you're pretty accurate when you say "you want to push harder but your muscles" don't let you. When it happened to me I didn't fuel enough before the ride, and didn't have something to eat either. Carb the fsck up, even if you're trying to lose weight.
