Three-way IVF consultation begins17th September 2012
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority has launched a public consultation to consider if genetic data from three people could be used to create a baby.
Professor Lisa Jardine, the organisation's chair, said: "It is genetic modification of the egg - that is uncharted territory. Once we have genetic modification we have to be sure we are damn happy." She added that they would consider "balancing the desire to help families have healthy children with the possible impact on the children themselves and wider society".
