Default What if people laid eggs?

What if instead of giving birth, humans reproduced by laying eggs.

How would life and society be different?

Do you think it would be better or worse?

Discuss.

And also about how I like eggs.

Then human eggs would probably be a delicacy in Asia.

The world would be a better place, mostly.

If you have to be delicate with your child before they live, you'd probably follow up afterwards and maybe onto other things too.

But hopefully that wouldn't breed infantile brats from overcaring.

Will egg sitting episodes still be allowed on TV even when the egg breaks?

Maternity leave wouldn't be an issue because you can just leave the egg in a incubator if it's too heavy or you work in a dangerous area.

what if someone breaks your egg? i feel there'd be a lot of forced abortions because it'd be so much easier.

The reverse might happen too. You might stick the egg somewhere warm and forget all about it.

How about this: Humans lay eggs, yes... But the eggs hatch in a couple years, when the baby can talk and is- Wait.... that's a horrible idea.

No seriously though, easier to baby sit while they're still in the egg.

I've also thought about this topic before, a long long time ago, in a-

I'd much prefer just laying an egg every month rather than bleeding.

Laying an egg seems a whole lot easier than the trouble women go through now. Less complications at birth and not caring for a sack of useless meat for years seems like the way to go!

To be fair, you're effectively giving birth once a month now.

On the rules of people laying eggs Kin...

1. Will people be allowed to consume unborn eggs, or is this still cannibalism?
2. How large are the eggs? Are they fetus sized (around 6-7 ounces and as large as a beach ball) or are they ostrich sized?
3. What laws are in place if one accidently drops their egg?
4. How long would it take an egg to pass for a human?
5. Regarding China, how would the egg resrtiction laws work? How many eggs can one person lay?
6. How long does it take for the egg to develop?

Inquiring readers want to know...

You're still pushing something the size of a baby out of your womb every month. The same amount of effort except now there's breakfast for the whole extended family.

Inquiring readers want to know...
1. Considered to be really gross to eat an unfertilized egg (akin to eating a placenta). Cannibalism if fertilized.

2. Ostrich sized

3. No laws. Accidental (fertilized) egg smashing is handled similar to a miscarriage.

4. The actual laying of an egg takes only a few minutes at most.

5. Not all eggs are fertilized so there are no laws about egg laying. The laying of an unfertilized egg is handled just like a woman's period.

6. 8 months from time laid to hatching.

Because it's a neat topic.

Another note: if people laid eggs I think there would be greater sexual equality.

Can't have it in eggs, babies come from there.

I voted no because I'm allergic to eggs in their basic/raw form and if I was born from an egg I would be dead and you people wouldn't know me and that's a life you do not want to live
