Victoria’s Assisted Reproductive Treatment Bill

HAVING a child is a major part of most people’s lives, but for gay and lesbian couples it can often be difficult. Victoria’s Assisted Reproductive Treatment Bill has the power to change gay and lesbian rights. Since this video report was created, the Bill has passed through the Victorian Upper House, however it will now return to the Lower House for final approval this year.

If approved, the Bill will give access of IVF not just to the medically infertile but to lesbians and single women as well.

Deakin Univeristy journalism student (Update, and now Today Tonight reporter) Tineka Everaardt looks at gay and lesbian rights in Australia.
