English pro-lifers decry '3-parent' IVF technique

Catholic World News - July 01, 2013

Pro-life leaders in England have denounced a plan to create children with 3 genetic parents, saying the new technique is macabre.

He pointed out that the technique is based on the laboratory creation of human embryos, with the vast majority deliberately destroyed.

    Does Mary Shelley's Frankenstein ring loudly in this story? I suspect there will be a resurgence of the novel soon. I also pity the poor children who are the victims of this experimentation.
