This story is truly amazing. Thomas Beatie, a transgender man, has decided to carry his child. He is quoted in a recent column as saying, "Wanting to have a biological child is neither a male nor female desire, but a human desire."
Beatie is transgender, legally male, and legally married to his wife Nancy. His wife had undergone a hysterectomy and was unable to carry a child, so Beatie stopped taking his testosterone injections and got pregnant.
The situation has sparked legal, political, and social opposition. The couple has been turned away from doctors due to religious objections. Even family and friends have abandoned them, with Beatie's brother even telling him after his first pregnancy turned out ectopic, "It's a good thing that happened. Who knows what kind of monster it would have been."
