Clare Bailey MLA

Family life a step closer for Queer couples with IVF access equality

Friday 29 November 2018

Clare Bailey MLA has said that she is delighted that same sex couples will be able to access fertility treatment on the NHS here in Northern Ireland.

The South Belfast MLA said:

“This is a huge moment for the many couples across Northern Ireland who would like to start a family.

“It’s a welcome step on the road to equality for Queer people. I also believe that we are close to the point in time when Queer couples will be able to marry, if that’s what they want to do.

“We need more detail on the fertility access arrangements – but for now it’s a great day for all the people who could now realise their dreams of becoming parents.”
