    A fertility treatment which eliminates hereditary disease by engineering babies to carry healthy DNA from a third biological parent could be legalised next year. Members of the public are being asked whether families with a genetic risk of incurable conditions like muscular dystrophy should be allowed to use the DNA of a third party to create healthy children. Although the resulting babies would inherit a small fraction of their DNA from the donor and not their mother or father, the procedure would spare all future generations from a host of rare and debilitating conditions. The technique is currently forbidden as...

    Baltimore, MD ( -- A new poll conducted by researchers at Duke University Medical Center and John Hopkins University has real concerns for the pro-life community. It found that 60 percent of Americans who are fertility patients would subject their human embryos to scientific research if they weren't going to birth them. The poll asked patients what they would do with so-called "leftover" human embryos they had no desire to implant and give birth to in a full-term pregnancy. The poll found that 22 percent would be interested in donating their embryos to couples who are looking for children to...
  • Too Much to Carry?

    Destroying a fetus requires three hands: one to hold the ultrasound transducer on the patient’s belly; one to inject the needle and maneuver it into a position near the fetal heart; another to draw out the metal rod at the core of the needle and replace it with the vial of potassium chloride. . . . [Dr.] Evans worked for a while trying to get the needle into the right spot. "I’m not in," he said at one point, tensely. Then he pinned [Fetus] C with the needle, and pushed the plunger to release the chemical. The fetus, which had...

    The Sexual Revolution has taken yet another unintended twist. Dr. Jo Heaton, who runs a sexual health clinic in Swindon, UK, was approached on four occasions in the past year by 14-year-old girls desperately seeking in vitro fertilization (IVF) services in order to become pregnant. "I found it absolutely extraordinary," she told the London Telegraph. The girls, white and from working class backgrounds, were fearful that they would not be able to become pregnant without assistance. They had already been sexually active for two years, reported the Telegraph. In each case the conversation went roughly the same," said Dr Heaton,...
