Some groups say the proposals for three parent babies are causing worldwide concern:
These techniques are unnecessary and unsafe and were in fact rejected by the majority of consultation responses.
It is a disaster that the decision to cross the line that will eventually lead to a eugenic designer baby market should be taken on the basis of an utterly biased and inadequate consultation.
Such a decision of major historical significance requires a much more extensive public debate with a much clearer outcome.
We therefore call upon the Secretary of State for Health not to legalise the techniques until a major national debate has taken place and the outcome is much clearer.
