How is a three person- baby made?
In order to prevent the heartache that results from losing babies to illness which is caused by defective mitochondria, three-person IVF was devised.
Mitochondria are tiny structures that exist in our bodies and their function is to convert food into energy. They are only passed on through the egg of the mothers.
The DNA from a father and a mother is taken by the Three-Persons IVF and then placed in an egg of a donor mother. The result child has at most 0.1 percent of his or her DNA from the donor.
Why Three-person baby technique?
Newcastle University in UK is where the advanced form of IVF was developed. And in June, their final safety checks were completed.
So, a great concern has been caused by the Mexico birth together with the procedure that is offered as a fertility treatment.
“We appear to be in a race to the bottom,” warned Dr. Marcy Darnovsky of the US Centre for Genetics and Society.
Dr.Mercy criticized other doctors by saying that they do ignore the ongoing policy debates and continue to perform what is known to be dangerous and socially fraught experiments on women and babies. In addition, they appear to be actively seeking a media splash on their way down.
“Use of these biologically extreme procedures for infertility is based purely on speculation.” She added.
