Same-sex couples to get free IVF on NHS
22 May 2012
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has suggested that same-sex couples should receive IVF free on the NHS, regardless of whether one or other partner has fertility problems.
The recommendations are part of draft guidelines currently under consultation. Josephine Quintavalle of Comment on Reproductive Ethics (CORE) commented: "[J]ust because someone's sexual persuasion does not allow them to have children does not mean we have to kowtow to political correctness."
