French doctors help gay couples with IVF illegaly


In France it is illegal for gay couples to use such assisted reproductive technology as in-vitro fertilization. But more than 100 doctors in the country confirmed that they help same-sex couples with such a service. Gay marriage was legalized in France three years ago and the activists insisted on accepting the bill towards IVF and surrogate motherhood for same-sex couples (because almost in all countries where gay marriage is officially recognized, gay couples have a legal opportunity to use assisted reproductive technologies to have full families). The bill caused a lot of disputes and in the end it was voted down.

But there are doctors who think that all people should have equal rights, and if straight couples are legally able to have children using assisted reproductive technologies, same-sex couples should also have such an option, because the words “legal” and “Fair” are not always synonyms.
