Pregnant man, Thomas Beatie, Due in July

Pregnant Man
Thomas Beatie who was once a woman is 5 months pregnant and expecting a baby girl this July. The Oregon, USA resident went through a sex change reconstructing only his chest and altering his testosterone therapy. He became pregnant after Beatie underwent artificial insemination.

Thomas and his wife Nancy decided to have a baby, but Nancy was unable to carry become pregnant after she went through a hysterectomy due to severe endometriosis 20 years ago.

“I stopped taking my bimonthly testosterone injections. It had been roughly eight years since I had my last menstrual cycle, so this wasn’t a decision that I took lightly,” Beatie said in an article for ‘The Advocate’ magazine.

Beatie felt that many doctors were against his decision to carry the baby because of their religious rights. Do you think this is playing with nature? Or do Thomas and Nancy Beatie have every right to conceive a baby in this unusual manner?

  1. technically, it’s not natural. But when you come to think about it, she/he was a woman before. It’s all a bit confusing, it’s going to be even more complicated when the child is born. Who’s the daddy? is he a real one? are there two moms?
    I am tolerant about homosexuality, but these kind of situations are not acceptable. Which world are we gonna leave o our children?

    This is SOOOO weird!!

    It’s not really a matter of right and wrong for me on this one, as long as the child is loved, and understands where it came from (is this story really true?!…I still can’t believe it, to be honest!).

    Poor child…he/she is guna have a hard time growing up…especially when Daddy is a he/she too

    😉
