Britain’s Highest Court Approves Conception By Three People




An IVF technique that produces babies with genetic material from three different people has been approved by the House of Lords in Britain. The rules are meant to allow certain clinics to carry out mitochondrial donations where the baby would have DNA from the mother and father at 98.8 % and from a female donor at 0.2 %.

The rules apply to a narrow range of serious diseases and politicians contend that they won’t lead to a slippery slope of “designer babies.”
