I thought it was kind of funny I didn't see it on the news. At first I
thought it was a hoax, but then that CNN report made me not to sure about
I admit. I was fooled. Guess it's an exercise of my skeptism. I need to work
more at it.

Subject: Re: The First Human Male Pregnancy
Further refutation at the Urban Legends site:
Now, fourteen years later, people have begun to wonder about the
web site at http://malepregnancy.com, which purports to chronicle
the efforts of one Lee Mingwei to carry off the "first human male
pregnancy." The site hosts video clips of "Mr. Lee," an ultrasound
video of his "baby," an "interview" in which he explains why he's doing
this, a discussion of how male pregnancy is scientifically possible,
and a chat room where visitors can discuss the "social implications"
of male pregnancies.
Is this for real? No. It is, like its sister site at
http://www.genochoice.com (where you can "Create your own genetically
healthy child online!"), an exercise in speculative fantasy. Follow
the links from the "Credits" section, and eventually you'll find a
disclaimer which reads:
This site ("Site") was created to be an exploration of a very likely
scenario that may one day result from new advances in biotechnology
and infertility treatments. The Site itself does not provide actual
commercial services, and the information contained on the Site is
not represented as being factually accurate. This is a fictitious
web site created by a single artist.
