Top doctors spark fury saying Trans men should have babies on the NHS

TOP doctors have sparked fury by saying transgender men should be given wombs on the NHS so they can have children.

They say taxpayers should fund the transplants because of “equality laws”.

Among the fertility experts is Liverpool University ethics lawyer Dr Amel Alghrani who even predicts men will be able to demand wombs “within 10 years” so they can experience “the joys” of carrying a child.

But critics say the NHS should not finance the scheme when it is so hard-pressed for cash.

Women’s campaigner Laura Perrins said: “Most taxpayers will not think this is a good use of resources.

It raises profound ethical and moral issues that will have an impact on women’s rights.

“It will impinge on the meaning of motherhood and womanhood.”

Tory MP Peter Bone said: “If there’s money for medical research, let’s spend on something that saves lives.”

Some gynaecologists believe implanting a donor womb into a man is possible and believe such ops could be just ten years away.

Since 2014, five women born without wombs in Sweden have given birth after receiving donor replacements.
