Scientists say it’s time for ‘three person babies’

Doctors are saying they want to start making ‘three person babies‘. How does it work?Three-person IVF replaces the defective power packs in the mother’s egg – called mitochondria – with healthy ones from a donor woman. A three-person baby has most of its genetic inheritance from its parents, but also a tiny amount from the donor woman.

Even though Parliament have already approved this development there are some scientists who are saying they want more checks to be done to decide if it is completely safe or not.
