British proposals to create genetically modified babies with three or four biological parents should be rejected, a new report says.
The report, written by bioethics expert Dr Calum MacKellar, says the techniques that are being discussed may carry medical risks for children, and for future generations.
Those in favour of the plans say the aim is to avoid mitochondrial diseases being passed from mother to child. But Dr MacKellar says alternative ways of doing that are already being pursued by scientists and they are far less controversial.
