Unbelievable! I just don't understand. It still has to pass one more vote. Will be watching to see what happens, though with the vote so high for yes makes it look pretty sure to pass.
BBC News - MPs say yes to three-person babies
MPs have voted in favour of the creation of babies with DNA from two women and one man, in an historic move.

The UK is now set to become the first country to introduce laws to allow the creation of babies from three people.

In a free vote in the Commons, 382 MPs were in favour and 128 against the technique that stops genetic diseases being passed from mother to child.

During the debate, ministers said the technique was "light at the end of a dark tunnel" for families.

A further vote is required in the House of Lords. It everything goes ahead then the first such baby could be born next year.
