As the US continues to grapple with gay marriage, the British may be a step closer to legalizing three-parent babies. Its part of a scientific strategy to help eliminate debilitating genetic problems. The three-parent technique would involve using some healthy DNA from a third party whos not the biological mom or dad in the creation of an “engineered embryo.” Although babies would inherit only a small fraction of their DNA from the third-party donor in such a process, it could save future generations from a host of genetic problems, reports the Telegraph.
