Ifb med denne saken ble jeg spurt av AP om å gjøre et intervju om mitt syn på dette, som kan leses på slutten av artikkelen. Artikkelen er også publisert i flere store og små nyhetsbyrå verden over .
Nine women in Sweden have successfully received transplanted wombs donated from relatives and will soon try to become pregnant, the doctor in charge of the pioneering project has revealed.
The women were born without a uterus or had it removed because of cervical cancer. Most are in their 30s and are part of the first major experiment to test whether it’s possible to transplant wombs into women so they can give birth to their own children.
Lise Gimre, 35, who was born without a womb, said she thought many women with the MRKH syndrome would be interested if the operation proves to be safe and effective. Gimre runs an organization for women with the syndrome in Norway.
“If this had been possible when I was younger, no doubt I would have been interested,” she said. Gimre who has two foster children, said the only option for women like her to have biological children is via surrogacy, which is illegal in many European countries, including Norway and Sweden.
