One baby, three parents: Brits change IVF law

MPs at the House of Commons on Tuesday voted by 382 to 128, a majority of 254, in favour of allowing the creation of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) babies with DNA from three people.

The move is aimed at preventing serious inherited diseases being passed from mother to child.

Under the change to the laws on IVF, as well as receiving the usual nuclear DNA from its mother and father, the embryo would also include a small amount of healthy mitochondrial DNA (mDNA) from a female donor.
