    Lab grown vaginas

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-26885335

    Doctors at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Centre in North Carolina used pioneering technology to build vaginas for the four women who were all in their teenage years at the time.

    Yikes! For those who will benefit this is a God send. I had no idea there was such a deformity (absence). Poor girls....this is a blessing for them. Amazing progress.

    Too late for Black Dahlia (according to some accounts).
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    When I saw the title, I thought this should be in bizarre news....but wow! I had never heard of this condition. Interesting for sure.
    May you dream you are dreaming in a warm soft bed
    and the voices inside you that fill you with dread
    make the sounds of thousands of angels instead
    tonight where you might be laying your head.
    I wish you well.

    I thought it was pretty educational and fascinating!

    I can't even begin to image what else they can "grow" now!

    Just think in 25 years what they'll be able to do!

    Love me some science!!!!

    Ok how long will it be before the plastic surgeons get hold of this? I see a new fad of having two

    Seriously though this is a big step. And once they get the procedure perfected, how long will it be before they can grow other organs?
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I shouldn't have made a joke above. One of our long-time posters has a daughter who was born female, but without female genitalia, and the daughter has had to endure many painful surgeries to construct an artificial vagina.

    Perhaps a discovery like this will save such women a great deal of pain and trauma.
