It seems that when some governments around the globe aren't using their riches to fund wars, they are digging into their coffers to sponsor scientists to conduct experiments that tamper with mother nature in obscene ways.
According to The Independent, in about 3 decades, the methods of bringing a child into the world will be drastically expanded in a manner that will make science fiction look like a fairytale. The UK news source states that scientists are "forecasting an end to infertility with the potential for any person of any age from one to 100 to have children. In place of a normal pregnancy, gestation might take place in an artificial womb." These scientists are also stating that the cloning of babies is also likely to be a reality in the future.
