United Kingdom Approves 3-Person Babies

United Kingdom Approves 3-Person Babies.

The methods involve altering an egg or embryo before it is transferred into a woman which had previously been forbidden by British law. They are intended to avoid passing on defects in the mother’s mitochondria, which can result in diseases including muscular dystrophy, heart, kidney, liver failure and severe muscle weakness.

It would appear that people opposing this would rather babies and children die of a horrific genetic disease, than have their superstition and uninformed sensibilities upset (like it was any of their damned business anyway).  This is an incredible breakthrough which could improve the standard of living for 1000s of people and possibly eradicate this form of debilitating genetic disease.  What is more worrying, are the comments in the thread of the Facebook post claiming that suffering is needed in this world, that if the world was perfect it would be called heaven, and the like.   “Just adopt” they say with an utter lack of compassion or empathy, (not that easy these days).

Because it's apparently that easy

The trouble is, it is not their own suffering they claim is needed, but that (at least in this case) of innocent children and the parents who have to watch them die slowly. I wonder how many claim to be pro-life. These parents’ longing for healthy children, is entirely human and now that we know how to help them we should.
