Is the controversial “three-parent baby” treatment life-giving or playing God?

Woman to Woman

Earlier this year the world’s first baby was born in Mexico using the controversial ‘three-parent baby’ technique.

And we could soon have it here in the UK – as early as next spring  – after getting the green light from the fertility regulator.

The technique was invented to allow women who carry disease in their mitochondrial DNA to have a child without the disease. However, this raises several serious ethical concerns. 

JOSEPHINE QUINTAVALLE is the Director of Comment on Reproductive Ethics (CORE) and tells Premier’s Lisa Mainwaring that the UK had crossed a “huge ethical and safety line”. Along with the destruction of embryos, one of the chief concerns is that the consequences of altering genetic material are unknown, and will be passed to future generations.
