No Three Parent Children

In my line of work, we’ve seen see biomedical breakthroughs at the expense of ethics, morals and values. Examples include human embryos created by in vitro fertilization, only to be routinely killed if they’re less than perfect.  Embryonic stem cell research has sacrificed countless human embryos for a failed science.  And there’s cloning.  But recently the FDA put ethics ahead of science.  They’ve directed a Manhattan fertility doctor to stop creating three-parent embryos.  Yes, I’m talking about a child who has DNA from three different parents.  This manipulation of human genes is unethical.  The FDA told him not only is his experimentation illegal, he won’t be able to export it either.  It’s encouraging to see a case where good wins over evil.
