Thomas Beatie, aka Tracy LaGondino, the Hawaiian Lesbian Activist who created a stir by claiming to be a “Pregnant Man” has reportedly given birth to a baby girl Thursday.
Delivery was by Caesarian Section, mother and baby are reported to be doing fine.
Beatie created a stir earlier in the year by announcing he was pregnant and revealing he is actually a she, but claims to be “legally” male by court decree. She underwent breast removal and took testosterone before becoming pregnant by artificial insemination, but retain all of her female reproductive organs, leading honest people to proclaim reports of a “pregnant man” a hoax.
That this became such a news worthy item is in itself a travesty. One does not become male by court decree alone. That is only a smokescreen for some unannounced agenda of Tracy’s. Females, heterosexual or lesbian, becoming pregnant is not an unusual occurrence. But, claiming to be male landed her on the Oprah Winfrey Show and brought International Headlines.
Had Tracy decided to become male and had all of her female reproductive organs removed and created an artificial male organ, perhaps she might be more accepted as a man, but she would not have been able to become pregnant or make such headlines.
On the Oprah Winfrey Show, she said, “I feel it’s not a male or female desire to have a child. It’s a human need. I’m a person and I have the right to have a biological child.”
Yes, Tracy, you do have a “right to have a biological child,” but to try to pass yourself off as a man is another matter. Legal decree does not change your DNA or Chromosomal make-up. Retaining female reproductive organs intact leaves one a female, even with breast removal.
To my skeptical mind, I see this move as using an innocent child to further break down barriers society erected long ago. Nature erected her own barriers and rules and all the legal decrees in the land won’t change that.
God created man, male and female, for a reason. No human being can counter that by trying to fool the public into believing you are a different gender than you are.
It is hoped this innocent baby girl will grow up surrounded by love and compassion and see the world through a normal persons eyes, not those of a Gay Activist who was willing to mutilate her body and create a false impression of a man becoming pregnant.
No, Tracy, two Mom’s will raise your daughter. She will miss out on the male input necessary for balanced children in a loving two-parent home.
She is only fooling herself, evidenced by checking into the hospital under an assumed name.
So, I ask again, what is newsworthy about a woman, even though a lesbian, getting pregnant and giving birth?
How sick of our society that many actually go along with this charade of a “pregnant man.”
