High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - July 17, 1974, High Point, North Carolina 12b High Point Enterprise wednesday july 17, 1974 questions of morals test tube babies spark controversy by Brian Sullivan a science writer new York a the births of three babies conceived in Laboratory test tubes and then implanted in the mothers wombs apparently were the result of scientific research and a Little bit of Luck. The feat reported in Britain on monday eventually could Benefit women unable to have children because of blocked fallopian tubes. Nevertheless it raises questions and controversy. Prof. Douglas Bevis of Leeds University said the achievement of fertilizing a woman s eggs in the Laboratory did not constitute a breakthrough. A so Many have been attempted that by the Law of averages some have come through a he said. In the United states a government health official agreed saying a they apparently have been he said he believes there has not yet been enough animal research to justify trying the procedure on humans. Proposed Federal guidelines for human experiments in the United states issued last fall recommended that the procedure not be done pending a demonstration of safety through animal study. The proposed guidelines Are awaiting the findings of a special commission studying the subject. Bevis told the British medical association the babies were conceived in a test tube with eggs taken from the Mother s ovaries fertilized with male sperm and after about a week implanted in the womb from then on the pregnancy proceeded normally he said the three births All within the past 18 months were nor i Mal with the babies showing no sign of abnormality he said. The announcement emphasized the developing genetic and biological revolution As scientists work to bring Man closer to new controls Over human life. Fertilizing an egg in the test tube for example could Lead to determining the sex of the embryo before implantation into the Mother. Depending on the preference for a boy or girl a fertilized egg could be discarded if it were not the Choice. A woman could hire another woman to do the work of growing a baby from her eggs to cite another possibility. Whose baby would such a baby be this kind of research might Lead to the ability to Correct genetic defects before implantation thus eliminating some diseases. But Laboratory manipulation could possibly result in the introduction of Abnor Salties and implantation of abnormal embryos of the kind that would be aborted spontaneously under Normal conditions some scientists have suggested. Or. Leon r. Kass a physician and biochemist who has warned in the past about the dangers inherent in Laboratory manipulation of life said there can be a legitimate humane Quot uses for various techniques such As allowing a woman whose fallopian tubes Are blocked to have children.
