Researchers claim same-sex couples may soon be able to produce biological children together.

This seems kind of important. PhillyMag.com has the story:

Researchers at Cambridge University and Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science say they have discovered a way to “create human egg and sperm cells from the stem cells in the skin of two adults.” Which means, for instance, an egg can be created from the stem cells of two men, and sperm cells can be created from the stem cells of two women… Researchers in the study say that we could be seeing same-sex couples producing children together in as little as two years.

    In the immortal words of Arlen, TX, legend Hank Hill, “this is science run amuck!”

    I wonder what they teach in medical ethics classes now. Honestly. Would they touch on a topic related to this?

      Wouldn’t touch it with a 50ft pole.

    Agreeing with Ian. After all, just because we can, doesn’t mean we should. But I would also note that at this point, the actual process of same-sex couples reproducing involves more than just creating eggs and sperm. I wouldn’t get too excited/upset about this.
