Austrian high court rules in favor of sperm donation for lesbians
A court in Austria ruled that Lesbian couples should be entitled to sperm donation, just as as are heterosexual couples. According to the court, the 'protection of the family unit' is not an adequate argument to refuse" sperm donation.
Austrian law currently "allows heterosexual couples who are married, have signed a contract or are cohabiting to have access to third party sperm donation provided that evidence is presented to confirm that medical assistance is required for procreation."
In the January 17 decision, President of the Constitutional Court Gerhart Holzinger wrote "there are no 'particularly convincing or serious' reasons to justify maintaining such discrimination."
A successor to former US-protege Maliki is in the works, while the Islamic State continues its bloody campaign. Over 500 Yazidis - an Iraqi minority group - were shot or buried alive by IS.
