England prepares for technique allowing children with 3 ‘parents’

 

CWN – June 28, 2013

 

Health officials in the United Kingdom are drafting guidelines that could allow for the birth of children with DNA provided by three different people.

The regulations will allow for new techniques of in vitro fertilization in which the nucleus of one embryo is removed, destroyed, and replaced by the nuclear from another embryo. Promoters of the technique see it as a way to help couples whose children are conceived with deadly mitochondrial diseases; a nucleus produced by the affected couple is placed in an embryo with healthy mitochondria.
