Gurgle.com: According to recent
reports, a British man in his thirties has given birth to a baby boy. The man,
who started life as
a woman but then underwent a sex change, apparently kept all
his female reproductive organs. The baby is thought to have been born by
Medical experts have said that if a womb is not removed when having gender
reassignment, nothing can actually stop the man from having a baby.
Process of getting pregnant:
This could have happened several ways- the man could have artificially
inseminated himself or it could have been a more lengthy process using IVF.
It is thought the man (who is as yet unnamed) would have taken female hormones
to reverse the effects of his female to male sex change. It is unknown whether
the man is in a relationship or not.
Joanna Darrell from the Beaumont Society, which is a support group for the
transgender community, indicated that the British man asked the details of how
he could give birth to a child before he goes for a complete sex change.
This is not the first man who has ‘come out’ about giving birth. In 2008,
American Thomas Beatie (who was born Tracey Lagondino) gave birth to a baby
after artificially inseminating himself having retained his womb after his sex
change operation. He has since gone on to have two further children.
Whilst this will stir mixed feeling amongst many of us, both men were born woman
and chose to keep their wombs whilst undergoing the first part of the gender
reassignment process. Josephine Quintavalle, from the campaign group Comment on
Reproductive Ethics, said the following:
‘It is a distortion of biology.Whether we like it or not, human biology is for a
male and female to produce a child and they are then called Mummy and Daddy.
‘If there is one thing that is uniformly agreed about children, it is that they
like conformity, they like to be exactly the same as everyone else’
