BABIES WITH TWO BIOLOGICAL SAME-SEX PARENTS COULD BECOME A REALITY IN JUST TWO YEARS

Researchers from Cambridge University have found that it is possible to make a baby using the skin cells of parents of the same sex.

A stem cell research breakthrough has revealed that in just two years same-sex couples could have their own biological children.
Researchers from Cambridge University have discovered that it is possible to make a baby using skin cells of parents of the same sex.
The researchers have shown, for the first time, that human egg and sperm cells can be made from stem cells in the skin of two adults. They have stated that the technique could mean same-sex couples could have babies in just two years.

The scientists used stem cell lines from embryos as well as cells from the skin of five different adults. Ten different donor sources have been used so far and new germ-cell lines have been created from all of them.

The team, funded by The Wellcome Trust, compared the engineered stem cells with human cells from foetuses to make sure they had identical characteristics.

Azim Surani, leader of the project, told The Sunday Times: “We have succeeded in the first and most important step of this process, which is to show we can make these very early human stem cells in a dish. We have also discovered that one of the things that happens in these germ cells is that epigenetic mutations, the cell mistakes that occur with age, are wiped out.”

  1. This would be such a blessing if this can happen, but if it does...something tells me it would be virtually unreachable for regular folk like me [it would be VERY expensive] or they will [more likely] quickly make anti laws against it to solely to hurt the gays.
