House of Lords approves 3-parent babies
February 26, 2015
Following a vote by the House of Lords, the United Kingdom has become the first nation to permit an in-vitro fertilization technique that allows for the production of human embryos with three genetic parents.
Auxiliary Bishop John Sherrington of Westminster told Vatican Radio that he is “very disappointed” but “not that surprised” by the vote.
