One Baby, Three Parents! Scientists Now Say It Looks Safe To Make Embryos From 3 Types Of DNA!

What an AH-Mazing medical breakthrough!

Britain’s fertility regulator ruled today that the controversial techniques to create embryos from 3 different DNAs doesn’t appear to be unsafe! Do you know what this could mean for gay couples??

While further experiments are still needed, the report just released found that lab tests done on animals show that this is indeed possible!

Dr. Andy Greenfield, who chaired the expert panel behind this report explained though that we can’t celebrate this breakthrough just yet.

He said:

"Until a healthy baby is born, we cannot say 100 percent that these techniques are safe. Safety is not a straightforward issue.”

This procedure is designed to stop mothers from passing on potentially harmful genes to their children and involve altering a human egg or embryo before transferring it into a woman.

But we can’t help but also think what this method of conception could mean for gay parents! Imagine two dads or two moms being able to pass on their genes to a baby!

If the UK approves the procedure, they would become the first nation to allow human embryos to be genetically modified in this way.

Critics however say this science is highly unethical and warn that too much is still unknown to consider it safe practice.

Others suggest that if this becomes an available option for prospective parents, people could then create designer babies, picking and choosing the traits they’d like their child to have!

What do you think, Perezcious readers? Is this a step in the right or wrong direction in medicine?

    I personally think this is horrifying. Just because scientist can do something, doesn't mean they should. This seems the beginning of a sci-fi movie right before everything goes wrong. See Splice, as an example.

    I am a second year student in Molecular genetics at King's College London, and I hate to break it to you, Perez, but this is not exactly what you think it is. It is more of a two mothers, one father type of thing. There are two types of DNA in your cells - the nuclear DNA and the mitochondrial DNA, which is inherited only from the mother. The process is also called extranuclear inheritance. There are various mutations in the mtDNA, which can cause for example colour blindness, Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy and so on. The three people's baby can be made by using an already fertilised egg, removing it's mutated mitochondria and replacing it with the normal mitochondria from another woman - the donor. This can enable a woman with mtDNA mutation to have her own child, without it inheriting any of those mutations.

    This is so wrong!!! We're talking about human life! So if in 2015 the trend is to have blonde hair, every new born would be blonde? What about diversity? Science is good but sometimes it just goes way too far
