    Wow, I was thinking yesterday in metro when I saw a handsome guy and thought how would our kid look like if there was any possibility of combining our genetic traits. Great news !!!icon_biggrin.gif

    I think a lot of people will be upset about this but I don't see how this can be stopped on a Worldwide basis. It is also probably going to create new legal issues.

    I may be behind the times on this but the last I read about it was 5 or 6 years ago and there were some serious problems with it.

    The first one was that it can lead to premature aging in the offspring as was the problem with cloned animals during the 90s that began diseases associated with old age before they were full grown adults. A normal sheep lives 12 to 15 years. The cloned sheep Dolly lived six and was crippled with arthritis from the time she was four.

    The second problem (related to the first) is any genetic diseases from the parents could also be accelerated and magnified.

    I'd like to hope gays who want children would seriously consider adopting.

    which isn't so easy and quite expensive too.
