Researchers Find The Process That Will Allow A Couple Of Women (Or Men) To Be Both Biological Parents Of A Child

Written by 



A few months ago, it was discovered that children could be created with three different DNA, knowing that this technique is intended for mothers carrying a gene that can cause serious disease in their children.

Today, we learn this time that researchers from Cambridge University and the Weizmann Institute in Israel have discovered a process that would allow same-sex couples to have biological children.

Indeed, researchers specialized in stem cell found that it is possible to make a baby through the skin cells. The human eggs and sperm cells are created from these stem cells and are not taken and used as during an insemination. The cells generated were then compared with human fetal cells to be sure they are identical.

So, a couple of women could become happy biological mothers of children, both biological mothers. I am talking about a couple of women, but of course, the process works for male couples too.

Of course I already hear you asking if this will be possible soon? Yes! Researchers said the process could be available for same-sex couples in just two years!

«We have succeeded in the first and most important step of this process, which is to show we can make these very early human stem cells in a dish. We have also discovered that one of the things that happens in these germ cells is that epigenetic mutations, the cell mistakes that occur with age, are wiped out,» Azim Surani, project leader, told The Sunday Times.
