Baby with DNA from three people born in Greece

Baby with DNA from three people born in Greece

Fertility doctors in Greece and Spain claim to have made medical history after a healthy baby was born using the genetic information from three parents. Scientists used a procedure known as the maternal spindle transfer, which is an experimental form of in vitro fertilization that combines the eggs of a mother, who was infertile, and a healthy donor mother and sperm from the father.

Mitochondrial transplant on fetus. Cool. The titles make you think that it had two mothers or two fathers. Lol. It does sound like they jumped the gun saying this helps with fertility. But glad this couple gets to have a kid.

Oh boy.... Wait till the Mormons hear about this. Why have a baby with each one of your wife's, when you can have one from all six.

Thank fuck! When I first skimmed the headline I thought it was a 3-headed baby.

So women have the "inalienable right to become a mother with her own genetic material" and also the constitutional right to terminate their pregnancies? Doesn't sound like multiple slippery slopes at all! /s

Tbh, I read the headline and thought this was some extramarital cheating shenanigans. Perhaps the missus fucked her lover and husband in quick succession and somehow got impregnated by both of them. Turns out it was two ladies, one dude. Science sure is weird.

Isn't this basically cloning? Was this the same process used in the process?

But if one of the mothers is infertile does she even give genetic information?
