Another pregnant man is pregnant

January 27, 2010

Again, no particular comment, I just want to record the news that, following in the footsteps of Thomas Beatie and Ruben Noe Coronado a third trans man has publicly announced his pregnancy.

Scott Moore and his partner, Thomas, with whom he lives in California, already have two adopted boys and Scott is expecting his first baby next month.

If this quote from the Metro is to be believed, it’s depressing to see that the medical profession in the U.S. is just as transphobic as anywhere else:

Doctors advised Scott to have an abortion and the couple, both 30, faced difficulties finding medics who would accept their unconventional circumstances.

“It was hard when people didn’t want to treat me”, said Scott.

“No pregnant person should be denied healthcare just because they are a man.”

My best wishes to Scott, Thomas and their family.

    I happened upon the Daily Male’s report of their story. While they used the correct pronouns and the wording of the article was fairly neutral (for the Fail) the comments… Oh, the comments… How do these people actually manage to make the computer work when they seem to be so incapable of the basics of humanity?
