A new medical technique called uterus transplantation has been considered as an option for raising children of women with uterine factor infertility. Clinical studies have already begun overseas, and 87 uterus transplantations have been performed so far, and 49 babies have been born. Uterus transplantation, like other assisted reproductive technology, involves many medical, ethical, and social challenges that must be carefully considered for clinical application. However, uterus transplantation is highly expected to bring the gospel to women with uterine factor infertility who were previously unable to raise children.
