But not by using the procedure for correcting mitochondrial abnormalities.

Oh forget it Boygie, in your pedantic way, whatever I say you will go over and over it again.

It's so that gay couples can have their baby and both be the father. Personally I think a chihuahua would suit such couples much better.

This issue isn't black and white.
Much of what it seems to imply concerns me: much inspires me.
My own situation might have been very different, my disabilities beimng congenital - I simply don't know - and would hesitate to pontificate on the matter, prefering to leave it to the experts.

The Church of Scotland Science Religion and Technology committee (SRT) composed of professional scientists, doctors, technical bods as well as ministers and elders, seems to be in broad agreement with the CofE and RC stance - but can't speak for the denomination: only the General Assembly can do that, and we prepare fore the annual gathering of the borefest - sorry - GA - in a couple of months.

Meanwhile, I think we need to defer to experts in the field for guidance on the issue.

As there is nothing wrong with gay couple having kids, if it works for them fine.

Except that it's unnatural, the child (which they "simply must have", said in the campest voice possble) being a mere commodity they can aquire by some Frankenstein process.

I don't think it is, is it? As I understood it, as well as the female mitochondria donor, the other two parents have to be a man and a woman - otherwise where does the egg come from? And what is the purpose of chap 2's sperm?

Yep.
The nucleus of the egg is removed after fertilisation and implanted into a recipient egg from which the original nucleus has been removed.
The process still needs egg and sperm.
Anything else would be a step too far, IMO.
