The “birds and the bees” as we know them are changing. New technology called in vitro gametogenesis is currently being developed, and if successful, it will completely transform the way humans think about reproduction. In the hypothetical human IVG process, an individual would provide a skin biopsy. A lab would then reprogram those skin cells to create induced pluripotent stem cells, which would then be used to create eggs or sperm. With IVG, post-menopausal women could generate viable eggs, and same-sex couples could make a biological family. A person could create an unlimited amount of embryos until they created one with the traits they were hoping for. The designer babies of the future are closer than we think. Here’s how the science behind in vitro gametogenesis is attempting to stretch the limits of human reproduction further than ever before.See the full article on IVG here: https://www.freethink.com/videos/ivg-in-vitro-gametogenesis  - Default - 4546Ivriblack_5f3a3921ae6bd_5f3a39c652ad
