A recent breakthrough in stem cell research reveals that women have the capability of creating sperm and creating offspring. The breakthrough means that infertile couples may have new hope.

"The researchers at Newcastle University say that the advance, when developed further, could help men with certain types of infertility to become fertile and even one day could enable a lesbian couple to have children that genetically would be their own. The experiment used embryo cells to produce seven baby mice, six of whom lived into adulthood, although the survivors suffered adverse events of the kind seen in cloning experiments." - Irish Health
