Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Three-parent babies are potential human offspring that will have three genetic parents. They are the subject of considerable controversy in the field of bioethics. Scientists have already produced pregnancies in which the fetuses contain DNA from three parents, but none have yet been brought to term. The process is currently prohibited in the United States, but is being actively researched in China.The process of producing a three-parent baby involves taking the nucleus of one egg and inserting it into the cytoplasm of another egg which has had its nucleus removed, but still contains mitochondrial DNA, and then fertilizing the hybrid egg with a sperm. The purpose of the procedure is to remove a nucleus from a cell with defective mitochondria and place it in a donor cell with healthy mitochondria, which after fertilisation will contain a nucleus with genetic material from only the two parents.
