The Daily Telegraph reports that the United Kingdom’s Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority will hold consultations with an eye to permitting fertility treatment with the DNA of a third parent in order to (get this) “spare all future generations from a host of rare and debilitating conditions.” I bet this is over-promising the benefits. And of course, there is no downside. And who can possibly oppose sparing the human race of debilitating conditions? Anyone willing to be that the HFEA doesn’t find in favour of permitting three-parent fertility treatment?
