He married to a woman how had to have a hysterectomy. She has grown children from a first marriage. She obviously could not carry so instead of finding a carrier/surrogate and the expenses of this, he decided to stop his tetosterone and carry for the couple. He is 6 months pregnant with a healthy baby girl.
Of course, the right wing conservatives are already calling them and the baby 'monsters' , they had docotrs and fertility experts condemn them. It was hard for them to find someone an OBGYN to help them and to purchase sperm from a bank, who also refused.
I happen to feel this is the ultimate unselfish act of love to carry a child even though you have finally become who you are suppost to be. This family has my full support.
I find it sickening that anyone could criticize ANYONE for being kind enough to carry a child, let alone for someone else. It truly is the most unselfish act in the world. They have my love and full support too.
