Japanese Scientists’ Artificial Eggs Discovery Could Lead to Designer Humans

Discovery Could Lead To Creation Of “Designer Humans That Will Be Bought And Sold Like Any Other Commodity”


Japanese scientists report they have successfully created artificially-derived eggs using mouse skin cells, and that some of those eggs could be fertilized with mouse sperm and produce born mice. Take a moment and read that sentence twice – it’s science but it isn’t fiction.  The age of the motherless mouse has dawned.

Some scientists hail this as a significant advance believing that, by creating artificial human eggs, we might gain new knowledge about early human development, or possibly develop a technique to help infertile couples reproduce.  But the technique also raises the specter of the large-scale creation of human beings, not just for reproduction but also for experiments, including designer babies to be bought and sold like any other commodity.
