Womb transplant marks birth of new legal and ethical dilemmas - The Boston Globe | Ethics | Scoop.it
Fertility medicine made a leap forward 10 days ago when a Swedish obstetrician announced the first birth of a baby from a transplanted womb, but specialists in Boston say such operations are unlikely to become commonplace anytime soon.
