Mouse created without father: Scientists turn egg cell into surrogate sperm.: "The team made the animals by combining the nucleus of one female's egg with that of another, essentially creating a mouse with two mothers."

Let's start with how creepy this is. Then, let's move on to its impracticality. Why do I say it's impractical? Because using two eggs means that every single creature you produce will be a female. It would make way more sense to use two sperm cells, and cut the women out of the loop.

My apologies for this non-political post.
