Conor Friedersdorf speculates that the abortion debate will change dramatically in future years if artificial wombs ever become a reality.
It is conceivable that adoptive parents would step in to raise children who would've been aborted prior to artificial womb technology, though it is unlikely that enough adoptive parents could be found to raise all the children now aborted. It is possible that society's views about killing fetuses would change in the pro-life direction once that change didn't entail forcing women to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term, and that the government would be in the business of funding large scale orphanages.

The Michigan House has voted to pass a state-level partial-birth abortion ban. It appears Governor Granholm will veto it. It has a veto proof majority in the House but it's short of a veto proof majority in the Michigan Senate by a couple of votes if I remember correctly.

Robert Novak has a column on possible Obama running mate Kathleen Sebelius' position on abortion.
