baby

The United Kingdom (UK) has approved a controversial in vitro fertilization procedure that produces babies using the DNA from three people.

The procedure, which was developed in England, was initially used when the mother's DNA contains genetic malformations that can cause neurological defects in her baby.

The UK, which is comprised of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Wales, plans to offer the procedure to 25 women per year.

Using several techniques, doctors take mitochondrial DNA from the nucleus (center) of the mother's diseased egg and transfers it to the nucleus of an egg from a healthy donor. The egg is then fertilized using male sperm from the father.

With this procedure the future baby is produced using bits of DNA from three people -- the mother, the donor, and the father.

Because the baby has DNA from three people, genetic problems such as muscular and neurological issues can occur later.

Debates over the moral and ethical issues of three-parent babies continue. critics liken the procedure to creating a Frankenstein monster.

The three-parent procedure has been performed in Mexico, but it is banned in the United States.

    So, how are the babies, teens and adults of this procedure in Mexico?

  • LadyFrance

    Sooooooo, when stuff goes left does the parent who has sole custody file child support on both other parties? Do they all have rights to the child? What are the medical outcomes years down the road? This sounds like a science experiment gone wrong or a SCIFI Saturday moving waiting to happen.

    This can happen when a woman is "The Playa" or Heauxish'.......People have been having bi-paternal twins for ages...... ??

    So you're doing a procedure to dodge defects but can create defects later? Makes sense........

    Can we kick white people off of the earth please? I don't want to hear they're not all bad either. The sociopathic ones aka the majority are making it hard for the 000.1% of decent white folks to live. I'm tired of them flying up in the most highs face. Their arrogance knows no bounds, look at this bull! I'm surprised the earth hasn't consumed them all already. I wish the ground would open up and swallow all of them. All they're doing is turning the earth to shit so they can go start all over again on Mars. Smh.

    SOOOOO
    Karrauche is playing a nail tech on a show coming to TNT with Neicy Nash.
    I'm ready ... lol

  • Libra80sBaby

    So what nih???!!!

  • puppylove

    So let me get this straight. You do this because the mother's DNA has markers for genetic malformations, but the procedure could lead to genetic malformations.

    Ok sounds like medicine to me.

    Just like anti-depression meds that could lead to suicudal thoughts.

  • puppylove

    They have to do things like this because they are dying off en masse

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Their birthrates are so low, they're dropping like flies. From genetic disease to natural sun light, this planet is not their friend.

  • Chardonnai

    I'm rooting for Karruche. So far she's doing good for herself. Earned herself 2 Emmys and new show. She showed Chris' ass, didnt she.

  • iWasteTime

    I am too! I'm glad she hasn't gone back! He didn't play fair either. Screaming her name on songs and chit!

  • CaliVirgo

    New post thank God

  • Chardonnai

    I just read an article that black woman are living the longest out of any demographic. White men are dying the fastest. As the earth gets hotter, the worse it will get for them. We were designed to withstand heat and sun. That's why God gave us melanin. They are gonna be in big trouble in 20 years.

    The show she was on won an Emmy not her. A few people on the show won individual emmys, a few won emmys nods.

    K Tran won neither.

    Actually she won an Emmy for production on the show call the bay. She was one of the producer's on the show.

  • Locapoca

    She's one of the few that threw the permanent deuces ??. I honestly didn't think she would stay away but some people really get sick and tired of being sick and tired. I believe he dogged her to the point where the lavish gifts and life were no longer worth her sanity

  • Locapoca

    All these incubator and test tube babies are getting out of control

    Mothers please advise: Do you see the baby foot like in the pic? Much respect to women. Y'all are the real MVPs

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    A sign of things to come. Medical and Technological advances are merging. This merging could be a receipe for disaster. Transhumanism is on the rise.

    What is Transhumanism?...the theory and belief than man is his own God...and with technology ...he can and must....create a better version of himself...of Man.

    Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are Transhumanist. They created an International organization to team up with like minded people.

    Watch the youtube below of a Black female Scientist who created a Robot version of herself and is making alot of noise in Transhumanist Circles.

  • Free speech cost Sheen

    This is already widely used here in the US. If you watch Maury; it isn't uncommon for babies to contain multiple DNA's. It is usually man-man, black Tony and Lakeshia sharing twins with two different dads. Per the descriptions often given by the women, Man-Man III has Balck Tony's shadow or Man-Man Sr's Shadow. this is nothing new. Especially in Decatur Ga.

  • CapricornIce

    Producing ET babies & shyt. Smh.

  • Tiffany Miller

    See... What in the H E DOUBLE ... the lips and eyes are all wrong. And then she gave the robot hazel eyes chile. LOL!!!

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    Nope, she was not a producer, and she won nothing. The show the Bay won.She did use the fact that the show won for PR for herself, and embellished, she is new and still learning the Ropes,....her manager probably put her up to how to "Spin the Win".

    Blogs will repeat the lie(PR Spin) either because the they dont understand or dont care, or just for Clicks.

    I would NOT lie to you ....just the facts....

    From the tv series website...Thebayseries.com

    "Recognized by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS), THE BAY is a multiple Daytime Emmy® Award winner in the highly competitive “Outstanding Digital Drama Series” category. Having previously won in 2015, THE BAY again won in 2016 after receiving a total of 5 Daytime Emmy® nominations in three categories including Mary Beth Evans (Sara Garrett), Lilly Melgar (Janice Ramos), and Patsy Pease (Lola Baker) for “Outstanding Actress in a Digital Daytime Drama Series," and Kristos Andrews (Pete Garrett), for “Outstanding Actor in a Digital Daytime Drama Series." THE BAY won in each of the three categories at the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards ceremony as, in addition to the series' win, Mary Beth Evans and Kristos

    Andrews were named winners in their respective categories. THE BAY also won two consecutive ISA (Indie Series Awards) for Fans Choice” and recently received two ISA7 wins in the categories of “Best Lead Actress – Drama” for Lilly Melgar and “Best Guest Actress – Drama” for Kym Whitley. THE BAY also won its respective category at this year’s HollyWeb Festival, known for showcasing the best digital series in the world."

    K Trans name not mentioned in there at all. Alot or Misinterpetation and Smoke and Mirrors happens regarding what goes on in the Industry/Celeb World by Fans and Consumers. Artist and PR Pros Capitalize on it....

    For example.... Jay Z spun the truth about owning the Nets, as well as Building the Barclays Staduim, it served it purspose by making him look like Major Player, Big Willy. If you work at an Executive Level in Entertainment you already knew it wasnt true. But to the fans it made him look like a Boss....it elevated his Star, his profile, and fan admiration.

    By the way the Owner of Nets is Mikhail Prokhorov and the Barclays Staduim was built by Brooklyn Arena Local Development Corporation for 4.9 Billion (Owned by Brooklyn Events Center, LLC.)

    Take look at my post, you might find it interesting.

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    I had a discussion with a gay fbook friend about this a year or two ago. I said that this makes me uncomfortable and that it's playing God and should not be allowed. He said that it's great because it may eventually allow gay couples to have babies that share both father's dna. I countered by saying that if you are unable to have children the natural way perhaps that wasn't God's plan for you. He said that I am assuming that he believes in God.

    That's where the argument/discussion ended.
    He's cool with frankenchildren but not God? How does one even debate with someone who thinks like that? ?

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    False equivilency. Women can be pregnant with twins that have different fathers but the children will not have 3 people's dna in them. They don't just absorb the other twin's daddy's dna by osmosis.

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    I'm sorry but this is a false equivilency. Three parent/dna children is indeed something new

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    I've seen a baby's butt pressing against the mom's stomach when I was a kid. Saw the split and everything. That baby is now in her 20's and boy is her butt big. Not just big but huuuuge.

  • pika12

    That's because God didn't want him up there getting on his nerves. So he sent him down here to work on ours. Based on the Old Testament, Job was one of the first people who God told Satan to "test", i.e. irritate like crazy.

  • leapyearpisces

    I was on another blog LATE last night (bored) and there was this excellent historical post (don't know when it was written) about how some doctor said that basically they think Teresa Guidice from RHONJ is a modern day Neanderthal or has closer roots to the Neanderthals than most modern people, because of her very low forehead (I am not going to lie, when I first saw her I was like that white lady need to pull the lace on her lace wig up) but I digress, anyway...the doctor was saying basically she is a modern day Neandrethal or something like that and that is why she is not the brightest crayon in the bunch and why she is slow.....a lot of other mumbo-jumbo, it was insulting and interesting at the same time.

  • lovelygamour

    They want to be special so bad! All thay are going to do is triple up bad genes. They keep inflicting themselves upon the rest of us. There is nothing wrong with any race that they cant produce the regular way. There are too many people on earth as it is.
    Is this for gay couples or just a bunch of white people looking to stay relevant. I dont have children and havent tried so I hope this doesnt come back to bite me: if you cant have kids maybe you arent suppose to. Take the testtube kid that has behaviour problems. The parents wont tell the doctor the kid was made in a lab. So the drs are just grabbing straws and not helping.
    I think we should go back to blood test before marriage and no kids before marriage. We need a way to keep this in check. It wont be fair if someone only wants 1 child they mate with a 3-parent, inbreed, testtube, or whatever else and the kid has problems. Full disclosure.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I love Prince....gone too soon :-(

  • Guess Who

    I wonder how that works?
    You get 23 chromosomes from mom, 23 from dad. Where does the DNA fit in to all of this if you have 3 donors? So is one mom donating an odd amount of chromosomes? Ain't DNA in chromosomes or vise versa? Who has a degree in biology? LOL. Explain!

  • CaramelDrop

    I certainly see your point and understand that FACT.

    With all thats going on today - none of this is amazing or shocking to me - kids been having 2 daddies? Same sex couples are raising whole families; people wake up and can change their sexual orientation AND race; animals are being cloned for human consumption . My point in this comment and last - MAN has BEEN rearranging and accepting the COMPLETE RECONSTRUCTION TO the natural order of things, what makes this any different?

  • OkWhatevah

    The spirit world is parent to the physical. What they fail to realize is that they are messing with spiritual law/order of things established by The Most High. When the ramifications manifest in the natural most will be too foolish to realize the real cause of it. Thinking they're wise, they're actually making a mess.

  • Mahogany

    Basically

  • Nelleoftheball

    What will be the reproductive ramifications for the children born of 3 parents? Will they be sterile? How will this affect their abilty to reproduce?

  • Allihave2say

    I saw a movie recently where they were trying to create super kids by tampering with their embryos. The effects of the procedure malfunctioning caused mutants who became dangerous and were automatically killed it they tested positive for the genetic mutation. That's where this is headed. Science is playing God, yet we take God out of the Creation of Man.

    They do have a lot of abnormal 'genetic diseases' don't they? I wonder why...

    Obviously there is something wrong, this wasn't created for POC, neither was organ donation.

    We? It's a specific race of people doing this BS

  • Nina Ross

    This is not an advancement.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    If you see in my comment where I said..."This merging could be a receipe for disaster".....Man trying to create a better version of man could have all types of crazy disasterious complications. Alot of these movies like Terminator, I-robot, The Maxtix... explore these theories.

    Yeah but don't forget, "we" do some dumb ish too....check this out, baby making centers in Nigeria and Ghana mate black women with white sperm donations so they can have light skinned babies. It's become a huge trend. Sick. Look:
