So they're NOT genetically modified robot babies? I am disappointed..

lol, like we'll be using them.

30 years from now we'll all be enslaved living in camps under the earth.

It will basically be hell.

tl;dr is that an infertile woman's egg was injected with a fertile woman's mitochondria to make the first woman's egg fertile, baby has genetic 'fingerprints' of 3 parents.

Not even crazy or weird. I was expecting some crazy story about a baby they purposely created that was intelligent, tall, strong, or something.. This is just stupid, anyone with mixed feelings or feels it's ethically wrong is an idiot.

It wouldn't matter if they were or not--I mean they gotta mate with someone! I'm sure we wont be changing that part of our DNA any time soon.
Listen. I'm sorry.

But over time that would make us see the ugly girls as extra rare, therefore special and desirable

You guys really need to learn about verifying sources.

Wut, you think I actually clicked the link?

Ok, yeah, I did. Otherwise, I'd probably think this was a thread about kids that were conceived in the back of a Buick.

Haha, sweet, finally technology is catching up to sci-fi.

And then I read the snippet that states this was only to help a woman conceive. As if life is all about having children...

The article is highly misleading.

The babies were born to women who had problems conceiving. Extra genes from a female donor were inserted into their eggs before they were fertilised in an attempt to enable them to conceive.
So this is far from raising a baby out of a tube with desirable attributes, which pops to mind when reading the title.
Not sure if a sig is a necessity.

If the article is correct then it seems that only the mitochondrial DNA is from another woman. That's hardly GM at all.

I wrote a quick paper on this and concluded I don't really like genetic modification, at least the stuff that isn't just for improved health

The ethical concerns don't really apply to this scenario.
