Virgin births are not just related to religion, but it’s also a part a big part of many old stories and mythologies that goes beyond Jesus’s birth, such as the birth of Horus, Huitzilopochtli, and Erechtheus — there’s nothing new about a soul coming to the world without any physical encounters!
But if there’s only one common thing about these ‘miraculous’ births, it’s that they were unexpected and definitely unplanned.
However, women are now turning to virgin births on purpose to avoid going through the hassle of being in a relationship with a man.
These women are taking the ‘I don’t need a man to complete my life’ phrase very literally, because finding their Prince Charming may take time, and they may not be biologically able to get pregnant and give birth when it happens.
Virgin births allow women to become moms without having sex with a man
According to the Daily Mail, women pay £5,000 for virgin births, with 25 women giving birth in the past 5 years without any sexual intercourse.
Instead, they seek the help of IVF firms that enables heterosexual, virginal women to have babies and become moms just like other women who get pregnant through sexual intercourse.
As expected, these no-sex births have been getting into hot water, with many religious and ethical movements accusing these women of deviating from human nature.
“When you remove a man from this, a woman becomes nothing but a breeding machine. Here, a woman is denying the child the right to have a father,” said the head of Britain’s Islamic Sharia Council, mam Suhaib Hasan.
Bishop of Carlisle, James Newcome argued against women having babies without a man’s involvement. He said: “The ideal is that a child has a mother and a father who are married to each other.”
Additionally, there has been a heated debate about whether such technology should be only used to help women who are biologically unable to become pregnant or also used to help women who don’t want to wait to meet their ideal man to become mothers.
It’s biologically possible to reproduce without having sex
You heard it right, humans can naturally reproduce without having sex!
There’s a neat term in biology called “parthenogenesis”, which is simply a natural reproduction process that doesn’t involve any fertilization - it only takes a female gamete for it to occur, and in rare cases, a male gamete.
But before you panic, this is extremely difficult and unlikely to occur in humans, and mostly occurs in comodo dragons, bees, ants, wasps, aphids, algae, some scorpions, and some plants.
Interestingly enough, One in 200 pregnant young women in America claims they never had sex or used IVF.
So, either they’re lying about the fact that they had sex or used IVF to get pregnant, or this extremely rare biological phenomenon had occurred in their body, which probably hasn’t.
At the end of the day, the age-old debate about whether women are ‘allowed’ to choose what they do with their bodies or the society should decide this for them is here to stay, and is expected to continue for many, many years to come.
