Actually if you watch the vid you'll see they've been very careful to note the tech is for Mothers at high risk of premature birth around the 23-24 week which is also the abortion cut off date

That said there are babies born considerably younger and the question may eventually be asked if it the technology could be extended backwards.

That however will be an ethical conversation that will await successful trials.

Remember this is V 0.2 tech at best.

No one's going to be running any GE super soldier programmes with this tech just yet.
