One of three films for the Human Fertilisation & Embryology Authority, exploring a proposed treatment called Mitochondria Replacement (sometimes referred to as 'Three Parent Babies', 'Mitochondrial Transfer' or 'Mitochondrial Donation').
This treatment would use DNA from a third party, to create embryos free from Mitochondrial Disease. The films were shown at a series of public consultations, to help people make an informed decision about the ethics of such a treatment, and whether it should be permitted in the UK.
Nb. The opinions in these videos are not necessarily those of the HFEA, but are a sample of a wider range of views on this topic.
