perhaps someday we really \won’t\ need men…the mouse virgin birth

Sci­en­tists have been able to gen­er­ate father­less birth in mice through a process called partheno­gen­e­sis — in which the fetus is cre­at­ed with two unfer­til­ized eggs. Though the process is still too dan­ger­ous to use on humans, this is still a sci­en­tif­ic break­through — until now sci­en­tists throught that partheno­gen­e­sis was impos­si­ble in mam­mals. And per­haps some­day this tech­nique can be used to treat infer­til­i­ty. All I can say is…chicks RULE!! 😉 Check out the source article.
