Would you prefer it if babies were delivered by stork (instead of women going through pregnancy and birth)? Or are you fine with the way it is?

Say that when you have sex & a child is conceived, it's magically teleported to a baby-constructing facility, where the baby is formed & then a stork brings the baby 9 months later.
Would that be preferable, instead of you (or your partner) undergoing pregnancy?

  • Voted C for the traditional way - and here I cheat a little and repeat most of an answer that I wrote to a similar question.

    To start on maybe a self-interested note, my girlfriend and I had amazing sex while she was pregnant. You would not think so, but after the first trimester her sex drive went off the charts. As for me, I always think that she is the most beautiful woman on Earth, but seeing her naked and pregnant just was a wild turn-on. That, and the idea that I can get her pregnant, that I can plant my seed in her and make a life adds to our sex.

    Then, I was there for the birth of all three of my children and I would not have missed it for the world. I write as part of my living and I don't even now think I can find the words to describe it.

    There was the heroism - and it is nothing less - of seeing my girlfriend in labor. It was pain and struggle and in the midst of all of that, as I watched and briefly held her hand and never felt more helpless and useless in all my life, she looked at me and smiled and said just three words - "I love you."

    The whole world brightened. This beautiful woman had given her body to me and was giving me this beautiful gift. My part had been small and nothing but pleasure and yet my girlfriend loves me! I was over the moon!! I have never felt more loved and wanted - an unconditional love that so few will ever be lucky enough to know.

    Then there was that moment when you hear your baby cry for the first time. Ten thousand thoughts run through your head all at once. I wanted to kiss my girlfriend to thank her and tell her I love her and how wonderful she had been. She gave me this beautiful gift and I can never love her enough to even begin to repay her how she has made me feel. I wanted to protect her and make sure she was safe and comfortable.

    At the same time I found myself cutting the cord. My little teeny-tiny bit in something so huge. My little contribution to the future and I felt so proud.

    Then, seeing my girlfriend and my baby together and, the tears running down my cheeks, all I could think was, "I would do anything for you. I would throw myself in front of a train for you. I need you both so much and I will always be there for you and never leave you!!"

    My girlfriend and I have had three children together - and sadly one miscarriage - and each time I felt the same. It never changed. It all runs together in my brain and yet it never changes. I feel love, I feel proud, I feel like a man and at the same time a helpless boy filled with excitement and - not to be too cliche - wonder.

    Ya know what? Truly, if you look at it, yes, it is a mess. Not pretty - and you'll never notice it. You won't care and it won't matter. I can only speak to it from a father's side. The pride and the unconditional happiness and love. I never felt more like a man, more like my life mattered and that I would protect and love my girlfriend and my baby and that I would do anything and give my life for them, then when I saw my children born.

    Add it all up. It has its wild ups and downs, and I am conscious of a certain selfishness in my answer - although I am happy to report that I asked my girlfriend and she agrees with me - but I would not change a thing. The stork will just have to find other employment.

  • For as much as we'd want to reduce (if not 'eliminate') the agony of childbirth, the current system is the better of the 2 proposals in terms of national-security.

    Should a rival nation wish to condemn an enemy country to extinction, that is as easy as tracing the storks' take-off location and sending a few cruise-missiles to the manufacturing facility. And BOOM! The nation is destined for irreversible extinction!

    Or why kill them all? Perform human-experiments on whole populations (other than your own) by infiltrating (or even taking-over) foreign nations' population-manufacturing centers.

    Invasions would be easy. Covertly demolish (or at least 'permanently plunge productivity-rate to 0'), emigrate your citizenry to that nation over the decades, and just wait for the original inhabitants to die-off 1-by-1.

    Screw anti-slavery laws! If the cartels, mafias, gangs, and elements of organized-crime wanted sex-slaves & labor-slaves galore, they could just infiltrate the production plant! If they coordinate with international counterparts, they could cripple entire nations.

    If governments recognized the threat and pre-emptively decided to post security-forces, so much for family-security & -independence! In exchange for security-services, the baby-factory's management would effectively be under the control of bureaucrats & politicians (plus their corporate cronies), subject to the political storms of the era. And they could start learning from other government's human-experiments & social-engineering campaigns. Truly, we would be at the mercy of the Powers that Be. (And if you thought corporations selling junk-food in schools was bad, can you imagine when they use connections with the Department/Ministry of Agriculture to alter their genes to increase enjoyment from/demand for of their products? Can you imagine weapons-manufacturers creating custom-made soldiers-races designed for their products 'for national-security'?)

    So, childbirth may not be perfect, but it is MUCH better than the alternative.

  • I went with pregnancy and birth. Pregnancy for me was no problem other horrible morning sickness the last trimester of my first pregnancy. My first was born with no medication whatsoever. Not by choice but because they offered too late! Both of my pregnancies had to be induced so my body didn’t cooperate and neither did my children as they were huge and too much for my body. My first had to be assisted with the vacuum (a large suction cup is placed on the head within the birth canal and pulled during contractions to assist). My second, as most are, was even larger. They say the head is the biggest... um no, my son’s shoulder circumference was an inch larger than his head circumference!!! I opted for an epidural but it didn’t work. His size put so much pressure on my pelvic bone I was in the most pain I’ve ever experienced in my life... they took him by c-section. Now the best thing between both experiences was the first was all about me. The baby was placed on my chest and we had time to ourselves for a short while before they took her to X-ray (yeah she broke her collarbone during birth). But with our son, it was an emergency c-section so they knocked me out as with any surgery. I awoke to feeling as though i slept a month. It was fabulous!! But my late husband got all the attention and initial bonding. He got to give our son his first bath with the doctor and was there for everything else until I woke up in recovery and sent to my room. Would I do it all over again? Of course I would!!! The pain you forget but i think the experience of both pregnancy and labor give that special bond and unconditional love for your child for most. I don’t know if I could be a male and just sit back and watch and feel the same bond.

  • I voted E, I don't have children (I prefer to call them children btw) and I don't currently have a partner. I just said E just because I'm scared of the pain that I see women went through in childbirthing videos! But on the other hand, I have seen how intimate and special it is to be carrying your very own child that you got to make! How proud you must feel knowing that you had a hand in creating someone with similar genes as you as well as your partner! it's a very intimate experience I am thinking! Knowing that it's because of YOU that your partner now has a child that is half his and half you is probably a surreal and very special experience! :-)

    Would you prefer it if babies were delivered by stork (instead of women going through pregnancy and birth)? Or are you fine with the way it is?

  • Pregnancy is a burden. I don't jibe with this stork fantasy. I'd prefer that babies would be grown in a safe facility; sort of like aquariums that you could visit and examine their development. I'd want to be able to enjoy watching the child grow. It would actually be better if you had a home kit to do it.

  • I would much rather storks haha. My biggest reason for not wanting kids is that I am absolutely terrified of giving birth

  • If that was the case, women wouldn't exist because they wouldn't be needed in nature.

    • Male seahorses are the ones who get pregnant and give birth, yet female seahorses still exist

    • They provide the eggs so the birds yeah, because she produces the eggs, she's needed in the process. The way your thinking isn't a something that requires a women's part, or even a males part. Its through "magic" so technically nobody would be needed,

    • To the males* not birds

  • Guys and Girls! Isn't that your imagination of a perfect way to have a kid?
    No condom sex, No pregnancy, No hospital
    but an adorable baby who has your genes whenever you want.

  • The storks aren't too far off in this day and age with the whole designer baby thing. Just create and bake followed by a home delivery from Stork Enterprise.

  • you mean have the baby be raised and born through a egg and sperm donation at the hospital and then have a guy from a company called "the stork" drop off the baby once the baby has been fully born? I wonder how much that would cost each parent to have that happen at a medical facility. People in that business would make bank.

  • Well sense we can't change the way God designed it to be, I'm fine with the way it is now. But say if babies were carried in my a stork instead pregnancy/ conceiving through sex-then I do think it would be a lot easier or safer for women I guess. And I suppose it would be a lot better for baby cause then you could say send baby back or take baby to another home with parents that want a child instead of the kid being aborted/killed.

  • That sounds fantastic actually

  • Pros.
    No morning sickness.
    No stretch marks.
    No back pain.
    No hip pain.
    No chance of miscarriage due to accidents.
    Being able to work right until the baby is delivered.
    Zero recovery time.
    No complications after birth for mum.
    Zero deaths from childbirth.

    Cons.
    Sorry I'm coming up blank.

    • Did you vote? by the way how do you feel about the guys in the comments saying that it'll decrease "connection" and stuff?

    • I have three kids.

    • None of the options suit me.

  • I don’t want kids but stork would be way better lol

  • Pregnancy seems like punishment rather than a gift. Sure the outcome is great, you get a small little human that cries and poops everywhere; however, regardless of that, he or she loves you unconditionally. Or so it seems because when they grow up, they're swearing and disrespecting you for fun and blaming their crappy lives on you. In a way, honestly, it is parents faults or even the government for this way of life and culture

    I honestly would rather die than be pregnant. I've never been pregnant and I would love to keep it that way

    For other women though, bring on the storks. Stretch marks and morning sickness and body changes is definitely not a gift nor a blessing. If a woman believe so, good for her I guess and may she be pregnant with the pain she so desires

    • You don't want kids?

    • I mean they're cute... I'll rather adopt one though

  • I loved being pregnant and giving birth so I wouldn't trade it

    • Why did you love it?

    • Because I loved feeling my sons move and kick when they were inside me. And giving birth was amazing because I got to meet them. I had such a strong connection and bond with them. When I seen them it was like I already knew everything about them

    • The pain of pregnancy and childbirth is really all worth it. Plus being a parent is far more painful then either of these things. Being pregnant I felt like I could protect them from harm now. When they are born it's constant worrying that they aren't safe, could get hurt or sick

  • Fuck yeah

  • Of course! Who wouldn't change 9 months of feeling sick and incredible pain for weeks in the end, and a risk of loosing both the child's and the mother's lives, for a simple Amazon delivery?

  • Lol the stork would save women some pain that’s for sure

  • Nah, that would be very weird. I want my kids to have my genes, not genes of some bird 😂

    • Presuming that they would still have your genes

    • And how would that be possible, by stork magic? :D

  • I have a feeling PETA would get involved and shut this down

  • I like that idea better

  • Yes I want the storks to bring me a baby

  • So where are these stork babies coming from? Are they of magical origin or do they come from plants like... Say Thumbilina?
