Brother and Sister Plan to Have a Baby Together

‘I’m going to have a baby with my sister, and we couldn’t be more excited.’

Chalk that headline up as another one that’s not quite what you might think it is but gets attention.

“Funnily enough, there’s actually nothing remotely incestuous about my sister and I planning to have a baby together,” said Australian Samuel Leighton-Dore.  Samuel identifies as gay, and he and his partner Bradley Tennant wanted to have a child with both of their genes.  As science isn’t yet quite up to converting sperm into eggs, Samuel’s sister Bronte is providing the egg.  They plan to have someone else be the surrogate mother.

In spite of the planned non-incestual arrangement, this is already stirring up controversy not only about incest but about the option of adoption.  While we aren’t experts on Australian laws on children, biologically it seems Samuel may essentially be adopting his sister’s biological child.

In any case, we wish them and any future children well.

    This is really cool. Loving people should be able to have a baby to love.

  2. Vernon Avaritt III says:

    A little bit strange but I wish them well

  3. Christian Andy says:

    I don’t know how I feel about this. In the Bible, a brother could marry the wife of his late brother. But this seems odd.

  4. Pope Hilde says:

    It would mean the child would be biologically related to both its fathers. A different arrangement.

  5. Rev. Bootie says:

    Incest is best.

    And why not? That is super sweet!
