THE UK PARLIAMENT has approved an IVF method for ‘three-person babies’.

The technique involves taking mitochondrial DNA (mDNA) from a third donor and combining it with the DNA of two parents.

The technique would be used by parents who want to prevent the passing on of a genetic abnormality or serious diseases.

We’re asking you: Would you welcome three-person baby IVF in Ireland?


Poll Results:

Yes (3029)
No (1964)
I don't know (730)
