Isn't it considered child endangerment...?

for a transsexual under lots of hormone therapy to be jumping through hoops to get himself pregnant when his wife could do the same job perfectly fine?

Am I missing something?


I mean, I'm pretty sure those hormones would have detrimental effects on the baby. How is that guy/girl on oprah not under arrest right now?

    The man/woman stopped the male hormone therapy prior to becoming pregnant. It was necessary or s/he would not have been able to become pregnant. S/he then took female variant hormones to help sustain a pregnancy. Also the wife/other woman in this relationship was not able to become pregnant as she had a prior hysterectomy. Those would be the pieces of information you are missing.

    That said, I do not agree with this situation at all. I think that it is tantamount to emotional child abuse what they are doing to this child before she is even born. Had they truly just wanted a family, they could have adopted or gone about this without all of the publicity. Instead, they are seeking their "fifteen minutes of fame" at the expense of a child who will spend her whole life being the subject of teasing, jokes and public spectacle. How sad.

    It is possible, this story is nearly as bad as the incest story with the Father and Daughter having a child and a relationship. What is with these people? Or is it me?
