A Neanderthal baby experiment is underway, but one of the main requirements needed for it to work is a surrogate mother. According to a Jan. 20 report by Daily Mail, genetics professor at Harvard Medical School, George Church, needs a woman to volunteer in a project that will help him bring back an extinct ancestor of the human race from more than 33,000 years ago. An "adventurous" woman is needed.
The geneticist needs a surrogate mother in addition to incorporating cloning. It's a complicated process that won't be achieved easily. Enough DNA from fossil bones have been obtained by Church to revive the extinct human from thousands of years ago. All he needs now is someone willing to carry the baby.
What would the "adventurous" woman be faced with if she chose to be a surrogate for the Neanderthal baby experiment? For starters, females from that period of time had a much larger birth canal to accommodate the larger heads passing through at the time of delivery. Church recognizes this and says the woman will most likely prefer a C-section.
Just when it seems like every headline out there has covered it all, a Neanderthal surrogate mother is needed.
