Mommy Dearest? 

Parthenogenesis is something that lots of species do. It's also a fun word to say. Naturally, mammals can't do it. The thing about nature, however, is that we have wonderful scientists working all the time to circumvent it, for all sorts of reasons. Although world in which males are unnecessary is only a good thing in the minds of people like Alix Olsen, there's lots of good that could come from this research: fertility solutions, genetic disease treatment, stem cell supplies, etc. Hope it works!
