What Are We Doing?? In Five Years We Can Have Lab Grown Humans


Growing human babies from scratch in a lab could be possible in just five years thanks to a new breakthrough.

Researchers in Japan are on the cusp of being able to create human eggs and sperm in the lab from scratch, which would then develop in an artificial womb.

Professor Katsuhiko Hayashi, a Japanese scientist at Kyushu University who has already figured out the process in mice, believes he is just five years away from replicating the results in humans. 

But there are ethical concerns, as it means women of any age could have babies. Parents may also want to design their offspring to have certain traits using gene editing tools, giving way to the notion of an assumed perfect child. 

Dr Hayashi and his team recently created seven mice with two male biological parents, using skin cells from a male mouse to form a viable egg and then fertilize it. 

The ability to produce custom-made human sperm and eggs in the lab is called in vitro gametogenesis (IVG).

It works by taking cells from a person’s blood or skin and reprogramming them to become induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells).

In theory, these cells can become any cell in the body, including egg and sperm cells.

They could then be used to make embryos and implanted into women’s wombs.

Scientists have been able to make very basic human eggs and sperm this way, but have not yet been able to make embryos.

Dr Hayashi guessed it would take five years to produce egg-like cells from humans, with another 10-20 years of testing before physicians feel the process is safe to use in clinics.

Stanford University Professor Henry Greely told Freethink he estimated that researchers will need another five to ten years to reach a reliable proof of concept, plus a decade or two for safety testing.

Jeanne Loring, a researcher at the Scripps Research Institute, said IVG in human reproduction told The New York Times in 2017: ‘I wouldn’t be surprised if it was five years, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was 25 years.’

  1. We’ve had them since test-tube baby Jessica. Like 40 years ago or something…if I remember correctly.

  2. When has ethics ever stood in the way of these acolytes of Dr Frankenstein?

  3. Dumb. They still have to be implanted into a woman. If we hadn’t destroyed male female relationships with feminism and anti masculinity this would never have come up.

  4. Yeah, looking forward to lab grown children being fed lab grown meat. This is cause for major celebration and a sweet meteor of death.

  5. So basically a race of people with no soul.

  6. BS – all this will bring is horrible birth defects and suffering.

  7. Have them for what? Supper? Would it count as cannibalism if they were grown in a lab.

    Soilent paisley is,
    Petri People.

  8. Aldous Huxley would turn over in his grave.

  9. Kinda gives me “Village of the Damned” vibes.

  10. We have definitely entered the realm of Brave New World. I hate dystopian ideals that are totally evil and anti-God as well as anti-American. Soma everyone, endless, mindless entertainment, free sex with everyone and everything (no thanks, of all a jillion and one genders and other species), the moment that you die you are totally forgotten and erased from all memory as if you never existed if you weren’t already aborted in the first place. I choose to go Galt and become like John the Barbarian. Will God still save us if there are at least 10 righteous men and women left in our world?

  11. You know, I was just thinking the other day that what the World REALLY needs is lab-produced human embryos!

    We’re knee-deep in chinks, indians, and indonesians as it is, but, hey, let’s find another source.

    Maybe they’re figuring that the fags are gonna win?

    mortem tyrannis
    izlamo delenda est …

  12. Fags will never win because they can’t reproduce themselves except thru evil artificial means.

  13. Wanna know why Jesus is coming back so soon?

  14. Imagine by John Lennon and In The Year 2525 by Zager and Evans, 2 of the songs that I hate the most have now become the new official anthems of the new dystopian future. PUKE!

  15. If we had ethics that prick with the jab woulda been in jail years ago!

  16. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
    Galatians 6:7

  17. If this is possible, these beings will be souless
