Britain’s equality watchdog has abandoned a legal case against the NHS for failing to provide fertility treatments to transgender patients.
Transitioning can lead to fertility loss, but many patients are not offered a chance to have eggs or sperm stored.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) had threatened NHS England with a judicial review, saying it should take steps to ensure such patients were routinely be offered fertility preservation.
The watchdog had argued that those seeking treatment for gender dysphoria should be treated in the same way as those with other conditions – such as cancer – which threaten fertility.
Has the NHS already given in? Or did EHRC realise how stupid he demand seemed?
You know, demanding that a woman, who has always been a woman and is very much still a woman, must have the right to be a father?
