Thomas Beatie pregnancy bulge?

Thomas Beatie lives in a former logging city in Oregon with his wife, Nancy Roberts Mr Beatie said he and his wife (The couple run a T-shirt printing company called Define Normal)claimed, is five months' pregnant and the story has caused a worldwide frenzy. Beatie, 34, a transgender man who was born in Hawaii as Tracy Lagondino, was a prominent gay-rights activist who found he identified with being a man. He underwent a sex change, which involved regular injections of testosterone, and having his breasts surgically removed (but keeping his female reproductive organs) and legally became a man. Nancy Roberts has health problems[had a hysterectomy due to severe endometriosis] and could not conceive, so Thomas Beatie stopped his twice-weekly hormone injections, allowed his periods to return, and tried for a baby. Now, the couple got access to a cryogenic sperm bank and purchased anonymous donor vials for a home insemination , Beatie says he is pregnant again and is due to give birth to a baby girl in July.

The first pregnancy was ectopic, and rarer still, with triplets. After surgery, Mr. Beatie lost all his embryos and his right fallopian tube.Michelle Garcia, an editorial assistant at the magazine, said The Advocate have verified the second pregnancy with Mr. Beatie's gynecologist.

However, a "man" becoming pregnant is not new. Trans man Matt Rice gave birth to a baby boy in 1999, and his trans man partner, Patrick Califia was delighted. Also scroll down to read "POP! The First Human Male Pregnancy" contributed by RYT Hospital physicians and scientists.

The fact that even other transsexuals react with hostility borne the common reaction is to wonder how someone can identify themselves as male and yet embrace pregnancy.

Doctors have expressed concern at the possible effect of testosterone on the unborn child. A Los Angeles obstetrician, told ABC TV that it is crucial that Beatie doesn't take any testosterone early on in the pregnancy and later on which can cause male-type characteristics in the female baby.Robert Withers, a psychoanalyst who has treated transgender patients also worries about the confusion the child may later experience. Ethicist Margaret Somerville frown to Mr. Beatie's story speaks to the uprooting of the biologically natural family, a process that began with same-sex marriage.

Mr Beatie his wife claimed they are being discriminated by doctors, health care professionals, receptionists and most of Nancy’s family who doesn’t even know Beatie is a transgender.

He was just on Oprah the other day. It is unbelievable, but true! It is a very unique situation. But I feel that this could have very disturbing consequences for the child. It is going to be very confusing to explain all this to the kid when he/she gets older. Hopefully the child doesn't get to emotionally mixed up from all this!

"Male pregnancy is the most ridiculious scientific experiment I have ever heard of. I do believe ,yes, this time they have gone a little to far. I am 10 weeks pregnant and offended that a male can share the same experience I have with my unborn child. Where do we draw the line? I am not one of those fanatical feminist , I believe men and women both have roles, that's the way we were intended to be. I am all for advancing technology, medicine, science etc.. but come on."

ASHLEY
United States
"I was just wondering why you would want to mess with human life? If males were ment to have children they would have been able too have them. If a man wants a child he can adopt there are enough poor children in the world already with out a home that need one. Leave the human body they way it is suppose to be. Don't mess with it, your wasting money."

DAWN

"I am a nurse that has always questioned why males couldn't carry a pregnancy full term. If this experiment fails, I would very much like to know why, and if it is successfull, i would just like to know for my personal knowledge, of course with pictures of the surgery to deliver the baby--I've always liked gross pictures, but am now profesionally interested in any and all of your documentation."
