British Dad Gives Birth

British Dad Gives Birth

The world would certainly be a different place if men could also have babies! As this story shows, though, it still takes a woman, or at least a woman's reproductive organs.

Following the success of Arizona's Thomas Beatie, a transsexual who has carried and birthed three babies, a British dad has also given birth to a baby. He is believed to be the first in that country.

Both this birth and Beatie's were possible because the men's original sex change operations were partial, meaning that they'd kept their ovaries and uteruses.

First, I'm a woman. I was born a woman. If you are born a woman and feel you should have been born a male and you decide to have an operation to go from being a she to a he that's fine. Now, that being said, if you have the operation to become a he REMOVE ALL your girlie parts and yes, that includes the ovaries and uterus. If you keep those organs, in my mind, you are not a HE! You are a confused she. That's just my opinion. So I do not consider the one in the states a HE who gave birth nor do I consider the one in the UK a HE who gave birth.

If a person feels the need to change their gender, okay.. go for it. But to say you are a "man" and yet still feel the biological "need" to carry and birth a baby, that screams "woman" to me. If you are having a baby, you are a FEMALE. Cases like this scream of selfishness to me.

to the god made men and women, we all start as neither and then as we develop we mutate into men or women. if god was sure of what we should be then we'd poof into the world preloaded with everything we need. But that is not what god wants. He wants us to learn to love to grow and become what greatness we feel is in us. Spewing hate is not in the bible but treating others as you would like to be treated is. Just saying live and let live don't judge others choices and make the right ones for your self. Ask for forgiveness when needed and be kind even if you don't believe something is right in yourheart.

All you holy rolling so-called Christians make me sick. God doesn't make mistakes, right? Therefore if God didn't want homosexuals, bisexuals, lesbians or transgenders here, they wouldn't be. They're also probably here to test you jerks out to see if you have the heart enough to be kind to everyone no matter their lifestyle and this is YOUR judgement by God and guess what all you holy rolling "good Christians" ain't going past those pearly gates in Heaven.

I totally understand a person believing they are trapped in the wrong body and desire their sex to match what they believe they are. Okay, so if a woman has a sex change to a man and desires children, that person (now a man) would adopt, have his wife carry, or have a surrogate because if he truly believes he is male he will not keep any femaie organs, if he does than in my opinion he is still a she and is being selective in when to be female/male.

This is sad but I pray that the babies don't get Aids from all this because they did not ask to be born to this. and they will one day answer to God I can't judge them for they know it was wrong to do this so for me let God be the judge I will be praying for babies.

I can't believe how many narrow minded people there are. It's very hypocritical and non-Christan like of people to be saying mean and judgmental things. People who are transgender do not chosse it for attention, it is in their chemical "make-up". Just because a person is gay or transgender it doesn't mean that they don't have the basic desire to be a parent. Just like there are straight people that have no desire for children. Regarding the comments about the child having "a messed up" childhood look around at all the "messed up" children raised by straight parents.

This is so sad and it totally defies the entire reason a woman was created.

So disgusting & not true, a real man cannot have a baby. God didn't make that possible for men that's why PEOPLE try to mimick it, why I don't know. God made Adam & made Eve why mess with perfection ?

People are really just crazy. Is this a dire need for attention or a hobby? I'm disgusted, and I don't care who I disgust by saying so. This is wrong, just plain wrong, in so many ways. I will literally pray the Lord will put a stop to these terrible games people are playing with the very essence of humanity before we are facing a world full of monsters. The heart of the Lord is breaking, that people have so defiled his most important creation.

Not a man in the full entirety of 'as born', so just a attention grabbing headline as the newspapers do!!

1ST OFF this "man" is a woman with changed parts so to speak. God made man and woman each to fullfill certian things and that is why a man could not deal with the pain of labor and birth. Tks

hmm, that is really interesting. The person they are showing in the photo (the pregnant man) is a person who lives here in Bend Oregon. This has been major news. I am doubting the validity of this article given they are showing a picture of someone who isn't even the same person. http://www.wweek.com/portland/blog-8294-update_%28now_it_gets_really_interesting%29_anothe.html

Not amazing he was a woman first. He already had the parts, what is so fantastic about that???? This is stupid. Can't believe I waste my time reading this.

correction....she is woman not a man......
GloriaAgabra GloriaAgabra 4 years
He is a MAN not a woman, i am offended at the fact that they refer to her as " male mother" what an obnoxious headline....seriously? surgery does not make her a man, she is a woman with un natural body parts surgically placed. Another thing if she wanted to be a man so bad, she has no business carrying a child, men can't bare children...hello, stop contradicting yourself, she is apparently confused. Plain & simple!
