The Pregnant Man

Thomas Beatie, a former woman who is now a pregnant man, defended his decision today to have a baby, saying he has a "right to have a biological child."

Despite removing his breasts, growing a wispy beard and legally having his gender changed from female to male, Beatie, 34, kept his female sex organs intact because he hoped to have a child some day.

After years of struggling with his sexual identity and deciding to live as a man, he did the most womanly thing possible -- he became pregnant.

In an exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey, Beatie said his lifelong desire to have children motivated him to use his still working female reproductive organs when he learned that Nancy, his wife of five years, was unable to conceive.

"I actually opted not to do anything to my reproductive organs because I wanted to have a child one day. I see pregnancy as a process and it doesn't define who I am," Beatie told Winfrey.

"I feel it's not a male or female desire to have a child. It's a human need. I'm a person and I have the right to have a biological child."

“Why there are some people are not contented who they are? They go to sex change that wastes their time because it is costly. Remember that God created female and male only. People are kind a sinful and that God forbid. In this issue, she is still a woman though she does change her sex organ but her reproductive system is still intact. She is now a mom. I know deep inside her she regrets of what she has done. I hope people will stop doing immoral thing in their life.”

Oh My.. I read about this too.. I can't believe she used to be a beauty pageant contender before changing her gender.

Well, whether we oppose it or not, I'm sure God has His reasons why He allowed such things to happen.

Take Care!
