-Babies Conceived by Two Men?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Scientists have produced baby mice without using a naturally egg from a female. The procedure might be used in the future to produce children for those who have medical issues. But some are talking about making babies without a mother at all using the cells and DNA from two men. Here’s the story from the Daily Mail:

Babies made without mothers ‘will come sooner than we think’, leading scientists warn after study discovered how to make embryos from skin cells

Late last year, a team at the University of Bath discovered that sperm and skin cells – or any other kind of non-egg cell – might be all you need for conception.

At the time, they said the scenario of men conceiving with men was ‘speculative and fanciful’.

But in a new report published today, the top embryologists at Harvard and Brown Universities urge nations to begin contemplating the legal minefield that would surround mother-less babies.

Response: We are living in a time when ethics and particularly religion are being ignored by scientists as they pursue discoveries and procedures without really questioning whether it should even be done or not.

If these procedures are perfected then it might be possible to produce ‘designer babies’ in the future by choosing certain wanted DNA characteristics. Also some are talking about using this method to produce personalized embryonic stem cells for future medical needs. Embryos would be produced and destroyed in the process which should cause many to question the ethics of it all.

I believe that most of the ethical questions will end up being ignored because of pressure from LGBT activists who will see this research as a positive development since it could make it possible for gay or lesbian couples to produce actual offspring including DNA from both members. Still a male couple will need a surrogate woman to carry their child to term until scientists come up with some kind of artificial womb.

It is obviously a brave new world where some seem to believe that they know better than the Creator.              *Top
