Iceland’s Gays Now Free to Pick Random Anonymous Guy’s Sperm to Make Kids

The new law passed without any votes in opposition: “Single women, gay couples and heterosexual couples who both suffer from fertility issues now have permission to use both donor eggs and donor sperm in IVF treatment following a law passed my Iceland’s Althingi parliament yesterday. Before the change in the law IVF patients were only allowed to use donor eggs in cases when the sperm came from the hopeful father-to-be. It was always prohibited for single women, lesbian couples and women not using their husband or partner’s sperm to use donor eggs.” [Ice News]

      Well done, Queerty! This is the first time that I have seen you guys cover an Icelandic gay rights story. Icelandic society is probably one of the most inclusive when it comes to gays and lesbians, definitely worth your attention =)
