It's proper 'Resident Evil' type stuff


So, now we can take a pluripotent stem cell (like a bone marrow cell) and force it to develop into viable sperm. This means there is a possibility of future auto-fertilisation.

I am traumatised by this information. Traumatised.

Especially by the fact that 6 out of 7 of the lab mice involved died of horrific unidentifiable tumours. And also, by the fact that someone rich enough or powerful might be able to grow human babies this way (and what will happen to the 'failed experiments'?) - no matter what medical ethics might have to say about it.

I am traumatised.
