Womb transplants hailed as success in pioneering Swedish project | Society | theguardian.com

Oh goody. Doctors are able to transplant a womb from one woman to another. So that someone may be able to have a baby.
Never mind the fact that our planet's resources are already strained.
Never mind the fact that so many babies already born are born into poverty, hunger, war and other dire situations.
Never mind the fact that the removal of a womb from a living woman carries grave risks for the donor.
Never mind the fact that the recipient must then be on anti-rejection medicine for the rest of her life [unless this is supposed to be an 'in and out' procedure. Pop it in, have the baby, then remove the womb?]
The primary motivation in this case seems to be: we might be able to do it, so let's learn how to do it. Never mind the ethics, the morality, the cost of the procedure. If we can do it, then it's OK.
