The Pregnant (Wo) Man

Wanting to have a child is neither a male nor female desire but a human desire.

-Thomas Beatie

Some questions:
-Does this raise ethical questions?
-Do you agree with the above quote? Is context important?
-If science progresses to the point where "real" men (or women) can have their own babies, would that be acceptable? Why?
-If you change your sex, should marriage with one of your former sex be allowed legally? What about biblically?
*Bonus question: What if one had a sex change, converted to Christianity at some point afterwards and was already legally married, should they divorce? Is that union biblical?
