July 4, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Health experts in the UK predict that men, and those who are born as males but who identify as females, will be able to receive womb transplants and bear children within a decade.
Dr. Francoise Shelfield, an infertility specialist and lecturer in obstetrics and gynaecology at University College London pointed out that transgenders’ right to such medical services is “enshrined in legislation.”
Dr. Alghrani, director of Liverpool University’s Health Law & Regulation Unit, said this would “revolutionise reproduction.” She foresees a wide range of possibilities, unthinkable a few years ago.
- For gay men: “Homosexual couples may . . . wish to procreate in this fashion.”
- For men who are not in a relationship with anyone: “Single men may opt for it to avoid surrogacy,” essentially becoming self-reproducing organisms.
- She even suggests that ‘straight men’ who are married to women may seek a uterine transplant in order “for couples to jointly share the reproductive burdens and joys of pregnancy.”
According to the Daily Mail, “Critics say the NHS (National Health Service) should not waste precious resources merely to allow trans-women to pursue an ‘authentic female experience.’”
Laura Perrins, former barrister and co-editor of The Conservative Woman, said: “Most taxpayers will not think this is a good use of resources. It raises profound ethical and moral issues that will have an impact on women’s rights.”
Feminist Julie Bindel, a visiting researcher at Lincoln University and former assistant director of the Research Centre on Violence, Abuse and Gender Relations at Leeds Metropolitan University, also told the Daily Mail, “[T]hose born male who are dosed with female hormones and undergo cosmetic surgery in order to present as female will never be women,” adding that “this is not about transgender rights – it’s about a twisted notion as to what constitutes a ‘real woman.’”
Bindel went further, saying, “Let’s be clear: this is a lifestyle choice, not a health issue. And quite frankly, I’m not sure if men will make good mothers.”
