Description
David Kermode reports on a decision by the British Medical Association (BMA) on whether to allow doctors to create babies using eggs from aborted human foetuses. Research shows the technique is now possible and the BMA’s Ethics Committee will decide whether it should be used. If the committee does give it the go-ahead, it will intensify the ethical row already raging in the medical profession. Includes interviews with David Alton MP; Dr Fleur Fisher; Dame Jill Knight MP; Health Secretary, Virginia Bottomley. Broadcast on the LBC Breakfast programme with Peter Deeley.
