Swedish lesbians forced to pay more for sperm

Artificial insemination costs vary widely across Sweden, forcing some same-sex couples to pay significantly more than heterosexual couples who save thousands of kronor by bringing their own sperm.

“We think that it is discriminatory that there are different prices for insemination,” Ulrika Westerlund of the Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights (Riksförbundet för homosexuellas, bisexuellas och transpersoners rättigheter - RFSL) said to the Aftonbladet daily.

RFSL would like to see a development of uniform regulations which apply across the country.

“But that would be complicated and would require the state to go in and regulate. However, we think that the rules should at least be the same within the county council; as many attempts and the same fees regardless of whether it is a same–sex or a heterosexual couple,” Westerlund said to the newspaper.

But according to the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (Sveriges Kommuner och Landsting – SKL) this is not a medical problem and therefore it is up to the individual counties to decide.

Bringing one’s lunch to work is always cheaper than eating out.

So bring your own sperm and you'll get the cheaper rate too, problem solved. :-p

Why am I assuming that the donors don’t get pictures of the potential “parents” when uh... giving a donation?!

The twisted logic of the gay community continues to astound. First and foremost, these lesbian ‘couples’ pay the same exact amount as likely an equal amount of heterosexual couples where the male is unable to produce fertile sperm. So they are paying the same amount as heterosexual couples who are in the same situation as they are.

But beyond that, you know they are not talking about raising everyone’s fees to be on the same block, they want the discounted rates where they no longer have to pay for collected and preserved sperm from donors. In effect, they want to turn the state into sperm buyers with the end result being that the state collects and distributes sperm for free.

Gimme, gimme, gimme - the more protected classes are created, the more those classes will demand special treatments and gifts.

The writer works for the NYP, right?

" .. heterosexual couples who save thousands of kronor by bringing their own sperm."


OK .. somehow someone is able to retrieve sperm and take it somewhere that puts it into a woman, right?

Why not just use God's injector and save all the money?

After he won the Triple Crown in 1974, iirc, Secretariat was syndicated for something like $20,000,000 and spent the rest of his life pursuing every American boy’s dream job.

Sounds like a line out of some B grade sci-fi.

Just an observation but human sperm must be about the cheapest commodity on earth. It seems every producer is insanely eager to get rid of every bit he can produce.

Whew!! They need to get it touch with the Primate Research Center for an appropriate donor.
......

I never could understand men donating sperm for use by whoever.
There’s probably enough frozen to repopulate Earth.
Personally, I would want to be the middle man. With rejection options.

Money!! (women selling their eggs too)

That is why IVF is morally reprehensible. At some point in time - millions of people are not going to know, with certainty, their true parentage or geneology.

This is no longer ‘playing God’ it is ‘doing the Devil’s work’.

“We think that it is discriminatory that there are different prices for insemination,”

Really? Based on what? Are you receiving the same service...No? You have to buy an additional "product" then get the service performed? I see. There is no discrimination here. The discrimination card is even more worn-out than the race card.

My first thought was that they should just get their sperm the old fashioned way ...

Now I see why they can't.

What really bothers me, is the concern I feel for people who practice homosexuality, man woman, whatever. Especially how rampant homosexual men and women are in terms of the obesity that you see among them, it’s disturbing. I can’t say from what I see that I am not seriously concerned about the health of these people, and what it is, that they are doing that makes them obese.

As for the cost, sorry but it’s cheaper to get sperm the old fashioned way, as opposed to having it bottled up, and getting comparably ripped off in price by the donor.

From that photo alone, I can’t tell whether they’re male or female. And I don’t think I want to know.

A dream job for a horse maybe, but Mares can be a handful. Especially if it’s a quickie and a twitch is needed.
