Scientists create human sperm

Could eventually eliminate the role of males in the reproductive process

by

Scientists at Newscastle University in the UK say they have created human sperm in the laboratory for the first time. The sperm, created in a test tube from the stem cells of a male embryo, promises radical new advances—for example, enabling infertile men to father their own children. But could also eventually eliminate the role of males in the reproductive process. The scientists themselves are posing the question of whether this is “the end of men.”
