It is undeniable that modern science and technology has been making the headlines in recent times with truly amazing discoveries and innovations. Millions of lives have been changed from the astonishing breakthrough recorded in different fields of science.
It was only a few months ago that a vaccine was developed for the dreaded Ebola virus that previously meant an unchangeable death sentence for any victim of the virus. Thanks to modern science, this is no longer the case. There have been similar innovations to improve medicine, lifestyle and even surgery. There are medical procedures that can change the physical features of a person so distinctively that you will have to be told what was done.
The doctors and surgeons have worked very hard to develop many procedures that make many things that could only have been previously imagines now very possible. In our societies, today liberalism has been accepted enough to accommodate people who undergo medical procedures to change their natural gender.
They are often referred to as transgender. This group of people have been in existence as far back as the 1800’s even farther, they have been the subject of ridicule and bullying for many years due to the strangeness of their orientation as against what many people grew up to understand as the norm. modern politics and lifestyle has given the transgender population some recognition as they are now able to freely express themselves in the society protected by the laws that protect every other living and breathing human being.
In Britain, it will first come as a shock to many people who will hear that a man is about to become the first male personality to go through pregnancy. The reactions that will follow will surely stir up the waters from all angles including social, religious and even political perspectives. The man has admitted his willingness to become pregnant and have his very own baby.
The headlines will cry out- The first pregnant transgender man in British history. His name is Hayden Cross, aged 20. He is originally from Gloucester and he was born a female. Hayden has undergone surgical procedures to change his gender and features from female to male. He has lived as a male for three years and recently become pregnant from sperm donated by an anonymous person.
The interview revealed that Hayden made this decision to have his own baby before carrying out the final medical procedures that will entirely remove his female features making him to appear as a male.
Hayden confirms that he has always wanted a child and this was just a dream come true even though it will be quite challenging for him as a person. He believes that he has been genetically configured to be a male and having a baby might be quite confusing to his mind and body.
Hayden has acknowledged the fact that there will be media uproar because of his actions to get pregnant and give birth. He knows the major query will question why he still wants to enjoy the joys of parenthood when he has started the plans to change his initial gender as a female which meant he didn’t care about having children.
Hayden affirms that he does not have the support of his family in this decision. They have distanced themselves from his male personality and disputed claims that he comes from a troubled home which was one of the main reasons why he has gone through many demeaning experiences in his life. His family has also come out to say that they have no confidence in his ability to properly raise a child.
This is not the first case of a transgender who has become pregnant. There was another case in 2007, a transgender Thomas Beatie was confirmed pregnant with triplets, but he lost the pregnancy due to some complications. Hayden might be the first transgender male to successfully undergo pregnancy and give birth.
