LONDON, England, August 2, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — England's taxpayers now not only pay for elective gender surgery for men, they fund fertility treatments for women with surgically attached male genitals so they can get pregnant.

The Daily Mail reports that three British women are now pregnant. This would not be newsworthy, except the women are fully transitioned “men,” and the government is paying for their pregnancies.

The women's eggs were frozen, at a cost to the taxpayer of about £3,000 (just less than $4,000) before they underwent gender “reassignment” surgery. Usually, the women have their reproductive organs surgically taken out via hysterectomy.

The British government pays about £30,000 ($40,000) for the women to then have sex change surgery.

An anonymous donor’s sperm later fertilizes the woman’s frozen eggs, and the growing human embryo is implanted in the woman's (female) partner, who acts as a surrogate.

Dr. Michael Nazir-Ali, a retired Bishop of Rochester in the Church of England, said the whole process goes against the “natural order.”

“Any child is best brought up by knowing the biological father and biological mother,” the bishop explained, emphasizing that children are “confused by not knowing if the parent is a father or a mother.”

“This shocking news shows yet again that IVF has opened up a Pandora’s box of ethical problems,” Anthony Ozimic, director of communications for the UK's Society for the Protection of Unborn Children, told LifeSiteNews. “IVF reduces procreation to a loveless laboratory reproduction technique at the call of consumers.”

“It is therefore unsurprising that any sort of consumers — singles, homosexual couples, and those suffering from the illness of gender dysphoria — may now order unborn children, whether privately or via the State, as if human life were a commodity,” Ozimic, whose master’s degree is in bioethics, added.

“Millions of unborn children have been abused and killed and their parents dehumanized by this alienating structure of conception,” he pointed out. “Entrenching people in their rejection of their birth sex, instead of valuing the natural fertility they have now, is only the tip of the iceberg.”

Conservative Party politician and Member of Parliament Peter Bone criticized the practice of sex changes and transgender fertility treatments on the government dole, especially when basic medical needs such as cataract operations are being rationed. “I just sometimes ask if the NHS is getting its priorities right,” he concluded.

“This story illustrates again why it's almost impossible to spoof Political Correctness.  Sorry, progressives, but there's no such thing as a 'pregnant man!’” Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth told LifeSiteNews. “These are just severely gender-confused women who still want to have babies.”

“How long will it be until American taxpayers fund fertility treatments for sex-confused women who get 'sex-reassignment' mutilations (female-to-male transsexual surgeries) —on the government dole?” LaBarbera asked. “Then we will be told that such 'men' actually deserve taxpayer-funded fertility treatments as part of their 'health care.'”

“America is only slightly behind Britain when it comes to embracing this LGBTQ insanity,” LaBarbera concluded.  “Both these once-great nations are plummeting fast into the pit of sexual anarchy.”

The statistics seem to verify LaBarbera’s claims. Dr James Barrett of the NHS Gender Identity Clinic in West London said that in the last year alone he has sent 50 of his women-to-male patients to have their eggs frozen, and 100 of his men-to-female patients to have sperm frozen.
