Scientists: The Future, Baby Is Genetically Modified


LONDON - Top officials and legislators in the UK looking into the possibility the scientists creating the baby has a genetic combination of parents, amounting to three. Experts say that the supporters of this project was to invite a controversial technique of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).

Wikipedia explains, IVF is a process by which egg cells are fertilized by sperm outside the body of a female donor. IVF is an alternative treatment of infertility when other methods of assisted reproductive technology have failed.

Reported by Softpedia on Monday (07/01/2013), this is done by experts to allow couples to engage in the process of fertilization is safe from the risk of various diseases. But not a few who argue that this technique violates ordinances of the Lord, so that should be banned.

DNA in order to create a baby of three parents, researchers only need to replace the damaged mitochondrial DNA with a nice sample of the donor.

In theory, IVF is done by collecting the contents of the fallopian tubes or uterus after natural ovulation to be mixed with sperm. Furthermore, the egg (ovum) is fertilized (zygote) is then transferred into the womb of the donor.

There is also an additional technique commonly used in the process of IVF include ovarian hyperstimulation to retrieve multiple eggs directly from the ovaries. Then, the resulting embryos will be selected first before being transferred back into the womb of the donor.
