Now Heather Really Can Have 2 Mommies

Matt Drudge is going big this morning with a headline about British scientists taking DNA from one man’s sperm and two women’s eggs and creating a designer embryo out of it. This is the science: “They removed nuclei from the sperm and egg of affected couples, leaving behind the mitochondria. The nuclei were put into one of the fertilised eggs left over after other women had IVF treatment. This egg had its nuclei removed – but retained its healthy mitochondria.” Well that was pretty lesbian of them.
