Did you know that in South Australia, and probably in other Australian states as well, that it is illegal for a couple without “fertility issues” to receive reproductive assistance?
I guess I had never thought about it before.
We had lunch with our friends yesterday and they were sharing with us some things that have been happening recently when we came to this.
If a doctor provides reproductive assistance to a same sex couple in South Australia they are breaking the law unless there is some demonstrated fertility problem.
That, my friends, is discrimination, pure and simple.
Some poor deluded soul had the nerve to say that it’s not discriminatory because any hetero couple who sought reproductive assistance would also be required to have a medical fertility issue. Ummmmm, hetero coouples without fertility issues DO NOT NEED reproductive assistance!
Makes me furious.
I’m ashamed that I never knew this law existed and I am ashamed that it exists in the first place.
That’s all I have to say really.
