Singe women could win right to artificial insemination

The newspaper Dagens Nyheter says five of the seven parties in Sweden’s parliament are either backing calls for a change in the law or are leaning towards it.

While lesbian couples in Sweden are allowed to try to conceive with sperm donors, single women are not and over the past four or five years hundreds are thought to have travelled to Denmark, Finland or Latvia to try to get pregnant, most with anonymous donors.

The issue is being considered by parliament’s Social Affairs Committee and Dagens Nyheter says only the Christian Democrat party is completely against a change in the law, while the Social Democrats have yet to decide either way.
