Motherless Sons of Micky

http://www.physorg.com/news/2010-12-reproductive-scientists-mice-fathers.html

Scientists have used stem cell technology to create mice using the genetic material from two male mice.

I can't say I'm really surprised that this happened. Given what we know about stem cells these days it was only a matter of time. Of course, since this means same sex couples could one day have children who are genetically theirs and that these kids would be able to reproduce normally then it's only a matter of time before there is an EPIC flip out over this from fundamentalists.

Personally, I'm all for this and anything else to do with stem cells. Mostly because I don't believe that all the junk you see in sci-fi stories about the dangers of genetic engineering will ever come to pass.
