Britain approves three-parent babies in Commons free vote

Case involved DNA from two women and one man

(ANSA) - London, February 3 - British parliamentarians on Tuesday approved the introduction of a fertility technique involving DNA from three parents.
    The technique, approved in a free vote with 382 MPs in favour and 128 opposed, is said to be aimed at preventing deadly genetic diseases being passed from mother to child.
    It must still be approved by the House of Lords in London but if successful, the first such baby could be born next year.
