Lesbian Conception

This chilling report comes from the U.K. Independent:

Women might soon be able to produce sperm in a development that could allow lesbian couples to have their own biological daughters, according to a pioneering study published today.

Scientists are seeking ethical permission to produce synthetic sperm cells from a woman’s bone marrow tissue after showing that it possible to produce rudimentary sperm cells from male bone-marrow tissue.

I wish that we could agree that not everything that can be done should be done. Not all scientific advances are moral. But that doesn’t seem to bother these researchers or even the broader culture. Is there any question that we are living in a brave new world?

    serious comment: Yeah, this isn’t good. Even taking the lesbian component out of this for a moment, do these scientists not realize the fact that if such things were supposed to happen that people would come equipped with a sperm spiggot coming out of their arms? Yeah, Denny, we agree. Yikes.

    serious, yet smart alecky comment: “I wish that we could agree that not everything that can be done should be done.” Like the Iraq war? Yep, we agree again.
