Scientists Created Sperm from Bone Marrow of a Woman: Man No Longer Needed for Reproduction

Magritte Rene - The Son of Man 1964

The University of Newcastle team that has achieved the feat is now applying for permission to turn the bone marrow of a woman into sperm which, if successful, would make the method more practical than with embryonic cells.

It raises the possibility of lesbian couples one day having children who share both their genes as sperm created from the bone marrow of one woman could be used to fertilise an egg from her partner.

Nearly went with this picture, but thought I'd be a little more creative and noodle around in GIMP© which I'm very bad at and needed to practice.
