Iceland Shakes Up IVF Fertility Treatment Law
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.
