In developed countries nowadays, like UK they have gone development in terms of photography. We commonly used it aesthetically but it has gone far beyond that. In Uk, there is one company that uses the so-called embroyscope. It is a technology that is being used to help dramatically improve In Vitro Fertilization through time-lapse photography. It is a tedious process that involves fertilization of an egg and a sperm in a petri dish. Commonly known to us as "test tube babies'.Time-lapsed photography setup, the technicians are now better able to see the development of the embryos, all without ever removing them from the confines of their artificial womb. They could monitor and take a shot every ten to fifteen minutes to the developing embryo. UK's CARE Fertility is a company that makes it possible for every couple to bear a child artificially.
IVF or In Vitro fertilization is a new technology nowadays with the help of the time-lapsed photography to artificially produce a baby from an artificial womb. Maybe somehow debatable in the side of the religious sector for they strongly believe that it is of God's will that a man and a woman produce a child naturally. But as for me, I could agree with this because there are couples that can't do it naturally. So, with the help of this technology it could be possible for them. Human knowledge has gone through miles away. So many inventions and discoveries arose because of it. So why not make use of it because it is also God's given gift. It is also one way to resolve the population shortage in some developed countries.
