There’s good news for same-sex couples wanting to have biological children. Currently, many gay and lesbian couples who want to have children opt for donor insemination, adoption, or surrogacy, which can be very expensive. Now, researchers at Cambridge University in England have taken the first steps in stem cell research.

Researchers have created artificial sperm and eggs by reprogramming skin cells from adults and converting them into embryonic-like stem cells. The group of researchers compared the engineered stem cells with human cells from fetuses and found that they were identical.
