Is it considered "virgin birth" if a woman who has never had sex is a surrogate for another couple and has natural birth?

This has been bugging me!

  • Sure, she's a virgin and she's giving birth.

  • Bump.... I want to read these answers.

    On one hand I would and on the other, not so much. I would like to hear other people's rational before deciding.

    GREAT question!

  • yes. they had an episode of Strong Medicine with a virgin birth. the doctor was kinda sarcastic, like "you've NEVER (sarcastically) had sex? we got a virgin birth here" that's gott hurt so bad if ur a virgin. your hymen is still intact and you've never even been stretched to fit a penis, let alone a baby...ouch

  • Though the hymen may be intact, IMO she is not a virgin. Sperm has been inserted and so therefore, no virginity.

  • Since when do they have women who have never given birth do a surrogacy? Isn't the first requirement: to have done this once and it not resulted in major complications?  Yes, it would be a virgin birth, but who would do that?

  • LoveMyDog - Usually the requirement is there, but ONLY if you go through a surrogacy "program." If it's a family member that isn't there. So if someone is willing to have their sister or mother's baby they can, even if they haven't had kids themselves.
