Baby Born from 20-Year old Embryo

It appears to be the new record for a cryopreserved embryo-birth.

In 1990 a couple underwent In Vitro Fertilization. They eventually had a healthy baby. They also, as is common, had a number of microscopic embryos that hadn’t been implanted, but were viable. They decided to anonymously donate them. Now, one of those embryos has produced a little boy, 20 years after being created. (via NPR)

In related embryo-news, Colorado has another personhood rights bill on the ballot for November.

As used in sections 3, 6, and 25 of Article II of the state constitution, the term “person” shall apply to every human being from the beginning of the biological development of that human being.

So here’s my question – under the proposed Colorado amendment, would this kid be legal to drink on his first birthday? I’m just sayin’…

Seriously, Colorado, just say no to proposition 62. Its proponents plan to use it to try and outlaw birth control pills and IUD’s.

  1. OT but Dr. Polaneczky – I’m looking for the place in your website where you list your rules for prescribing HRT and can’t find it as the link in the “7 Things” article didn’t work. Where can I find them? Thanks!
