A professor of IVF studies from a university held up two test tubes and said to the class: “These two contain two carefully synthesised ingredients that we can now use to create human life.
“Solution A is a genetically engineered copy of all the ingredients in the female ovum, while Solution B replicates the active ingredients in male spermatozoa. If I mix them in this aseptic glass container a new human life will be conceived. Now any questions?”
“Could you possibly give us a demonstration?” asked an awed member of the audience.
“I’m sorry,” said the professor. “Not tonight. Solution A has a headache.”
