The boiling point of water is only 100 C, so water can not be used to heat the flask containing Isobutyl. Heat the flask containing the Isobutyl directly or heat it in a substance that has a boiling point above 108 C

Why is it unethical to conduct an experiment with humans that would determine if alcohol consumption during pregnancy causes damage to the fetus?

The experiment you describe is unethical for two reasons. In the first place, the fetus in question is a human being who will have a greatly reduced quality of life as a result of the fetal alcohol syndrome that you caused by means of your experiment, which is a violation of human rights. In the second place, the experiment is entirely unnecessary, since there are lots of irresponsible women who have consumed excessive amounts of alcohol while pregnant and have given birth to babies who suffer from fetal alcohol syndrome, so we already know what the medical consequences are, of alcohol consumption during pregnancy.
