Also supposedly the fetus is in one of his three stomachs(not in the abdominal cavity) where one would think it was subjected to stomach acids and other digestive juices--unless he can turn one stomach off?
Also the site where the placenta implanted would be subject to arterial bleeding when the placenta was removed. Rarely an abdominal pregnancy occurs in humans, even more rarely it grows to viability(24 weeks plus) with the placenta attached to the liver or bladder or whatever. Obviously the baby must be removed surgically and again the site of placental implantation is subject to massive bleeding. Unlike the uterus which is made to clamp down with strong figure eight muscles to clamp down on the arterial sites, other organs can't do that.So the mother is at great risk.
In 30 years I have never been present for such a delivery but 4 occured in the US in one year according to the literature.
Anyway the whole scenario is implausible, but hey! it's Farscape and we love it most of the time.
