A lesbian couple from the UK recently became the first parents to carry a baby in both of their wombs during a first of its kind procedure that doctors are characterizing as a breakthrough in "shared motherhood."
The procedure, offered by London Women's Clinic, involves one parent harvesting the egg, which is fertilized by donor sperm, and the other parent carrying the fetus in her womb.
Jasmine Francis-Smith gave birth to their son, Otis, two months ago using an egg that was incubated for 18 hours by her wife, Donna, before being transferred to Jasmine's womb for the remainder of the pregnancy.
The process means that Donna is the biological mother and Jasmine is the gestational mother.
The Telegraph notes that while more than 100 babies have been born to lesbian couples using artificial incubation, this marks the first time that both parents have shared in the process.
Lance Corporal Donna Francis-Smith, 30, told The Telegraph, "We're overwhelmed to be honest, it's blown up massively."
"It's definitely brought us closer together emotionally," she added. "We're a close couple anyway but we both have a special bond with Otis as well which was helped by the way we've done it."
The couple is saying that the procedure made them feel "equal in the process."
"We're just happy that it's worked so well and the information is out there," Jasmine added. "It will help people in the future it brings you closer together rather than feeling one has a bond more than the other."
For some reason I don’t think they consulted GOD first.
That kid has been tossed around early.
It’s still perversion. That child will still grow up to be profoundly disturbed.
That poor kid.
From another lesbian? This is getting complicated...
Child abuse, in the womb.
Perverse we much...
Good job, doctors. All you have to do is not agree to do it. Sick freaks, all.
Need an organ transplant and your over 50?
Heres the business card of the funeral home.
PS: wouldnt if just be easier if they sewed in a zipper?
Stupid and foolhardy and risked the life of the child (let alone the damage thats probably been done during development
It’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature.
Seems to me that moving the baby mid-pregnancy has to be a substantial medical risk for the child.
Regardless of one’s view of all the other circumstances, putting a child at risk for the enjoyment of the adults is the height of wickedness and irresponsibility.
Wow...sounds like the carpet-munchers got a new toy.
The baby is not a toy. The baby does not exist for your amusement. The baby is a living unique human.
What kind of twisted Dr. and staff would agree to doing this? England is done but I bet they could get it done here too.
Imagine the court proceedings when the couple separate.
Your Honor, I am the biological mother.
Your Honor, I carried and birthed the child so I am just as much the mother.
I wonder if the judge would pull a Solomon and ask the bailiff to bring a sword?
Just make sure you don’t call it a “baby” until you’re sure your demented stunt hasn’t killed it.
...Or was this not the first try?
Sick bastards should be put down.
