Gay couples could one day have their own biological children carrying traits from both parents, according to new research.
A reproductive technique yet to be tried on humans would be able to use sperm from two fathers, or eggs from two mothers, to create offspring related to them both.
Such a breakthrough could even lead to 'multiplex parenting' with groups of more than two, or children created by just one parent.
So much for the argument that God determines when life begins.
As the father of a gay child, this makes me very hopeful.
It also kind of makes me wonder just how much longer it will be before science completely does away with sickness and death? And then what becomes of us once it does?
