MONTREAL, August 18, 2003 ( – When a healthy baby boy was born in Montreal after developing for 32 weeks in his mother’s abdomen, but outside the womb, some began raising the question: “If a fetus doesn’t need a womb, then does it need a woman?” So said a Globe and Mail feature last week.  “Scientifically, [implanting a child in a man’s abdomen] is a possiblity, and one day I’m sure somebody will do it,” said Dr. Togas Tulandi, chief of obstetrics and gynecoloy at the city’s Jewish General Hospital. “It’s not science fiction. It’s scientifically possible.”“Scientifically speaking, male pregnancy is possible, and it’s a germane issue,” adds Dr. Vyta Senikas, with the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada. “But I don’t know how men would put up with it if, every time they cough, they lost a little bit of urine. Or the hemorrhoids. Or the other physiological changes that naturally accompany pregnancy. I’m not sure men are psychologically prepared.”  For Globe and Mail coverage:
