With all the Frankenstein-like science that we’ve been seeing in recent years, it was only a matter of time before scientists found a way to create babies using three parents. Now, doctors in the UK have been given the green light to create three-parent babies.

The procedure will be carried out using fertilized eggs made with standard IVF along with DNA from female donors.
