Men lack this thing called a uterus that mercifully are exclusive to the fairer sex. They also lack many of the hormones required to make an effective transition into the severe changes in metabolism that occur during pregnancy. A man would also need a vagina. Something all men want but not in that way. So, synthesizing all these components would be damn hard.

Also, If men were the ones who had to give birth to babies, there would be no more babies.

Why the hell would any guy want to be pregnant? I thought there'd be a screenshot in this thread from that Arnold Schwarzenegger movie "Junior". I think people should be able to make babies the normal way unless your wife produces healthy eggs but can't have a baby for some reason. Then I guess you can have her egg injected in you so you guys can have a baby.


I'm surprised only you mentioned the film. I loved the film, it was hilarious especially when he was giving birth. It is really technically possible for males to have babies, just that society can't get over the whole 'we actually have homosexuals alive on Earth' things yet, let alone think about homosexuals adopting children. So males getting pregnant cannot be accepted by humanity because like homosexuality, it goes against what tradition has taught you. (this can burst into a science vs religion debate since religion doesn't accept abnormal stuff which is done by science).

i agree. i don't think the right biological tools and mechanisms are in place for men to successfully bear a baby on their own. the baby would have no way to obtain nutrients, immunological resistance, etc from the father except perhaps by injection. also, the father doesn't really have a frame to support childbearing, so expect some serious hip and back problems for him in the future in addition to whatever other internal organ disruption that may occur. basically, it's bad news for both the baby and the father, and comparatively more feasible to do in vitro...

oh, and i haven't read anything about the sperm & egg from bone marrow before, but it's probably safe to assume that they manipulated stem cells taken from bone marrow. if so, that's kind of a no brainer.. simple enough to do if you're familiar with the developmental pathway and gene expression, after all, it's just a single cell; you're not trying to create a new person.

haha, and yea, the human race would end right there if someday men became the sole childbearers. =P
