Ok, you might remember a couple of posts I did about GMO‘s (genetically modified organisms) that are in our food. This is a new technology where genes from one species is forced into DNA of another. There are many, many reasons why we don’t need GMO’s in our food and you can get a whole bevy of answers HERE.
But guess what is going on now? This is crazy!! Now scientists are messing with CHILDREN! YES!! Check this out:
(NaturalNews) US fertility researchers from the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science of Saint Barnabas in New Jersey have created 30 healthy babies who have been genetically altered. It has been confirmed that two of these children have the DNA of three parents.
The babies were created when women were treated for infertility by Professor Jacques Cohen and his team. Their eggs had defects in tiny structures in their egg cells called mitochondria. They had mitochondria from donor eggs inserted into these eggs, as well as DNA from sperm cells. The mitochondria contain DNA and therefore have carried the donor DNA into the egg. The babies will now pass on this genetic change to their children down the maternal line when they reproduce.
Are you kidding me? I don’t care how brilliant or ‘ahead of his time’ Professor Cohen has been described, this is wrong and it’s not happening in a foreign country….it’s in New Jersey. There are medical, social, ethical and many, many more issues that are being raised.
‘The majority of published research shows that death or mutilation of the clone are the most likely outcomes of mammalian cloning’ said John Kilner, president of the Centre for Bioethics and Human Dignity in the United States.
People, we’re messing with some dangerous stuff here. You can read more about this on these sites:
What do you think about this? Do you think we should be cloning babies?
