If this is true, verifiable, repeatable… then this discovery will go down in history as one of the biggest science solutions ever.
The Japanese Kyoto University team in Japan are saying they have created eggs from embryonic stem cells — ones that can produce healthy offspring!
What does this mean?
If you're in a committed gay relationship, this means that you and your partner can have a baby using both of your genes!
Here's what they said:
"This discovery will allow gay men to create an egg of their own, not having to use a donated egg from a female donor, thereby allowing creation of a child born with both parents DNA, not just the DNA of one of the men and the DNA from the egg donor, as is currently the case."
Holy hell! That's so FAB!
The type of cell used is called an Induced pluripotent stem cell and can be harvested from skin cells. So one partner can donate the skin, the other can donate the sperm, and then they just have to find a surrogate!
We're so excited that we don't even want to think about what anti-gay groups are going to have to say about this…
