three-person babies

MPs [members of parliament] will hold a crucial vote later [today] to decide whether to allow the creation of babies using DNA from three people.
They will have a free vote on the technique, which is aimed at preventing deadly genetic diseases being passed from mother to child.
The UK could become the first country to legalise three-person babies and it could help about 150 couples a year.It has sparked fierce ethical debate and senior Church figures have called for the procedure to be blocked.
