The Scientific Case Against Three Parent Embryos

20/02/2015 4:35 pm

An international petition to stop genetic modification of human embryos and the creation of 3-parent children is aiming to collect 100,000 signatures from across the world. The petition is against the UK attempt to introduce regulations which would allow scientists to create a child using DNA from three adult sources, mother, father and egg donor.
