Mama mia! Introducing the 3-parent IVF baby

Doctors in Great Britain say they've developed "groundbreaking new procedures" that would allow three-parent fertility treatments to parents who want to prevent passing incurable inherited conditions (think: brain disorders, blindness, muscular dystrophy and heart problems) on to their children.

Wha?! Taylor Swift the 'whorish face of doomed America'?
