Building upon the ideas that the incubation of children grants women a disproportionate amount of power in regards to children, there is a logical extension of this being a technology utilized for women who don't want to subject their bodies to the vicissitudes and dangers of carrying a child to term. Thus if we could somehow safely extract fetuses in their embryonic stage with little risk to women then there would be little need for the contentious practice of abortion. With governments like Japan having a pressing impetus to preserve potential citizens it seems a straightforward idea that developed nations would want to utilize such a technology to increase or stabilize populations without having to impose the burdens on women.
