MRT has now become law in the UK and the first three person baby has been born. Do your research to discover what MRT is, how it is done and what the implications are. When you have decided where you stand, write an argumentative essay in which you defend your standpoint and refute counter arguments.
Refer to my second blog, The Essay Archive, for sample essays:  
Familiarize yourself with the issue:
·         M.P.’s say ‘Yes’ to three person babies
Reading material to make notes on:
·         “First three person baby born using new method”
·         Social and ethical issues in mitochondrial donation
·         Three parent babies: an ethical boundary is being crossed
·         Three person IVF: science shows ethical questions remain unanswered
Videos to watch and take notes from:
·         Three parents and a baby
·         Three genetic parents: what are the ethics?
