An unintended consequence is that gestation may be longer; There is a hypothesis that all humans are 'technically' born a bit premature (relative to other mammals and primates) so that the head may fit through the birth canal. Another hypothesis holds that it's because of the human bipedal gate or the energy cost to the mother that would be required to have a longer gestation period.

Do you want "brave new world"? because this is how you get "brave new world".
That's exactly what came to mind. The description at the beginning of the Hatchery tour and the decanting line.

Great book, btw.

examine it from a property perspective. don't you have the ability to destroy that which you've created? and, your taking that zygote from its creator against their will would be theft. you do not have that authority.

Slavery, owning a human, human's are property.

Nobody ever said do it by force, only willingly
