I’m a little late in posting this, but it does seem appropriate for International Women’s Day.
The Swedish government is working on legislation that will give women in same-sex relationships the same right to artificial insemination and fertility treatment from the national health service as those who are partnered with men. Not only that, but lesbian couples will have to be given the same priority in the queue for these types of health services as straight couples.
This, along with the current conversation at the highest levels of government to make civil marriage available to same-sex couples, makes me really proud of my adopted country, and I look forward to the day when I’m eligible to apply for citizenship (later this summer!).
