In vitro fertilization has made virgin pregnancy and birth possible than it was thousands of years ago. Was Jesus Christ born this way or was his mother culpable of hiding some facts assisted by Joseph and Elizabeth?
There is a phenomenon that took place thousands of years back and changed the whole wide world – The birth of the famous Jesus Christ. While I am among those who thought it quite unlikely that his birth was virgin, virgin pregnancy and birth are now possible thanks to science. Women no longer need sex to have a baby in the womb and the birth canal needs not be used for birth for we have caesarian surgery.
What might have happened to the Virgin Mary?
It is likely that this innocent girl got pregnant in three different ways:
- She was raped while on her way to school and could not say so because of the massive depression and feeling of uncleanliness that arose from the rape.
- Her boyfriend of the time dumped her after learning about the pregnancy, and she had to find an alternative in Angel Gabriel and the Holy Spirit.
- She did undergo in vitro fertilization and that is what made her pregnant without ‘knowing’ any man.
Whichever the case among the three, it was a big sin, even a crime for any woman to become pregnant out of wedlock for that meant being stoned in the marketplace by people who are less righteous.
She was assisted by Joseph and Elizabeth to invent the first virgin pregnancy
The poor girl had to think of an explanation and she had to think of one very fast. Assisted by poor Joseph who decided to take on a burden that wasn’t his and Elizabeth who had mysteriously become pregnant (did she cheat on her husband) they claimed the involvement of Angel Gabriel and probably the mighty Holy Spirit and helped invent the concept of virgin pregnancy and birth.

Science has made virgin pregnancy and birth possible than it was
Science has now picked up from where they left. Many young men are willing to work for fertility clinics as sperm donors, and pregnancy without sex is now far more possible than it was some two thousand years ago. The birth canal need not be used when it comes to birth either; it is now possible to maintain its virginity by giving birth through caesarian surgery.
Our teenage daughters will start blaming IVF for early pregnancies
How many virgin pregnancies have we had? Probably none unless our teenage daughters stop using the Holy Spirit as an excuse for their premarital promiscuity and start blaming In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) as a possible cause of early (virgin) pregnancy.
