Three Parent Babies: Women Paid £500 to Become ‘Second Mothers’

(The Telegraph) – Newcastle University is offering women £500 to become ‘second mothers’ to three-parent babies.  On Tuesday the House of Lords is expected to give the final approval to the scheme which would see the first babies being born from the controversial IVF technique next year.  Scientists at Newcastle University are likely to be the first to conduct clinical trials and have begun advertising for women to donate eggs.
