Incredible Possibility!

The Telegraph wrote:Sperm cells have been created from a female human embryo in a remarkable breakthrough that suggests it may be possible for lesbian couples to have their own biological children.

British scientists who had already coaxed male bone marrow cells to develop into primitive sperm cells have now repeated the feat with female embryonic stem cells.

The University of Newcastle team that has achieved the feat is now applying for permission to turn the bone marrow of a woman into sperm which, if successful, would make the method more practical than with embryonic cells.

It raises the possibility of lesbian couples one day having children who share both their genes as sperm created from the bone marrow of one woman could be used to fertilise an egg from her partner.

:feminist: Is this icon relevant? I caught it off the side bar. lol

There is a grain of truth to that though. Since only the Y chromosomes could result in males. We'd pretty much be only producing female descendents. An amazonian universe come true! lol

Jane Fletcher's all female world come true. In the novels, they f**ked it up as much as the men have this one.
