【不再需要男性:澳大利亚将在20年内让女性自己生育】

【不再需要男性:澳大利亚将在20年内让女性自己生育】David Molloy博士表示,由于生育技术的进步,怀孕将来不再需要男性的投入。而另一位生育专家说,澳大利亚妇女将能够在二十年内生育出没有男性的婴儿。主要是因为小鼠最近出生在中国的两位母亲身上,因此博士Molloy博士相信也会出现在人的身上,但是目前道德委员会和法律认为这将组织人类谨呈,但是或许人们的态度会伴随时间改变。http://www.looooker.com/?p=60286

 

No men required: Australian women 'will be able to have babies WITHOUT males within two decades', fertility expert says

  • A fertility expert says women will soon be able to have babies without males  
  • Dr David Molloy said it will be possible by breakthroughs in fertility technology
  • His comments come after baby mice were recently born to two mothers in China 

Australian women will be able to have babies without males within two decades, a fertility expert says.

Dr David Molloy said pregnancies will no longer need the input of males in the future thanks to the advancements in fertility technology.

Baby mice were recently born to two mothers in China, and Dr Molloy noted he does not see why the same feat cannot be achieved in human reproduction.

At present in Australia, ethics committees and legal prohibitions would put a stop to the process in humans but Dr Molloy said attitudes will change over time.

Dr Molloy said 'scientific successes will continue to happen, and they cannot be stopped', The Courier-Mail reported.

'It would mean that heterosexual couples where the man has low-quality sperm, and women couples, can have their own genetic child,' Dr Molloy told the publication.

'I think it will be possible to fertilise an egg with a set of half chromosomes and targeted gene editing.'

Dr Molloy said the advancement in fertility technology would be 'a tremendous breakthrough' but noted it was 'important to rigorously investigate the safety and assess the ethics'.

His comments come after baby mice were born to two mothers in a breakthrough study that could spell hope for gay couples who want their own biological children.

Twenty-nine healthy mice were created by scientists at the Chinese Academy of Sciences using DNA taken from two mouse eggs - without sperm from a father.

The young pups grew into healthy adults and even had healthy children of their own.

Scientists said the technique could one day create humans whose biological parents are two women, or two men.

Mice from two fathers were also born but survived just 48 hours, with some sporting gruesome genetic mutations such as long tongues and oversized bodies.

Scientists created the same-sex-parent mice using 'haploid' embryonic stem cells, a type of cell with half the normal number of chromosomes.

Dr Teresa Holm of the University of Auckland, who was not involved in the study, called the research 'an important advance' and said it boosted our understanding of genetic imprinting.

She added that the technique could one day lead to technology that allows gay couples to have children who share both partners' DNA.

Robert Norman, a reproductive expert at the University of Adelaide, said: 'The concept is intriguing for human reproduction, particularly for same-sex couples.

'But there are far too many uncertainties at present to attempt such an approach for many years to come.'
