A man having a baby?Yes, it’s true and this is not an Arnold Schwarzenegger film. An Oregon transgendered man has come out of the shadows to show the world his new…baby bump!

Thomas Beatie is facing numerous health problems should his pregnancy continue through a birth. But scientists are split as to how the pregnancy will play out. Born a woman, Beatie should be able to carry through to term.

But the question central to the entire issue is whether the chemicals a transgender person goes through will endanger a fetus? As this is not science fiction and not true science, the answers to these questions will be answered as Beatie progresses through the next three months.

Six months pregnant, thus far, issues have not arisen. Doctors are concerned of the biological fact that because women are born with all the eggs they will need for life. Beatie has chemically-altered eggs and leave researchers wondering what will be created inside what is essentially a male human body. It remains to be seen.

Beatie was born female and went through sexual reassignment surgery 10 years ago, but kept reproductive organs intact.
