Viability of transplanting embryos instead of aborting them?

  1. How would one go about estimating the viability of transferring embryos from woman to woman instead of just removing the embryo?

  2. Has anyone ( a research institute) investigated the possibilties of such?

  3. Would this option please any in the pro-life and pro-choice crowds here on SD?

Comments and Suggestions please

Has this been experimented with in zoological circles? Maybe in some effort to keep alive an endangered species?

Hmmm…an interesting proposal, one I’ve even thought of myself. unfortunately, I’m guessing that it wouldn’t be possible with our current level of technology, at least not without an invasive surgical procedure and very high risk to the embryo/fetus.

I’d say that “Pre-Natal Adoption” has a catchy ring to it.
