Are there any limits today?

I got this from the Orthfully Catholic blog, but I felt the need to comment on it. First of all the story itself...

The Times Thursday March 27 2008, p43'Married man who used to be a woman is pregnant with a baby girl'Who says fatherhood is being made redundant? When it becomes totally unnecessary for men to be present at the conception of a child he will simply carry the child for his infertile wife.

This is a report discovered by James Bone proudly printed in The Advocate an American gay magazine. Tracy Lagondino had a sex change and became Thomas Beatie, married Nancy who was rendered infertile by a hysterectomy operation 8 years ago so, still having 'his' womb and ovaries Thomas inseminated himself and became pregnant with triplets. The pregnancy was ectopic and he lost them with his right fallopian tube.

He tried again and is now 22 weeks pregnant with a baby girl. The insemination had to be done at home as they couldn't find a doctor who would help them due to religious reasons.

I'm rather sickened by this article. This is a classic, albeit extreame example of the moral relativism we find ourselves in today.

Where does it ever end? What are the moral limits? This is also a complete disregard for the welfare of the child. Imagine asking Daddy where babies come from... That would be a fantastic birds and the bee's talk to hear.

The body is the revelation of the person... Nuff said.
