GAYpril

I have to say…It has been a HUGE week for the LGBT community – Particularly in terms of same sex marriage reaching the SUPREME COURT.

It almost feels surreal to me – I remember that bittersweet moment in 2004 when we celebrated Massachusetts legalizing gay marriage and feeling some sort of tug about this being a state issue instead of a federal issue.  Where would we be today if slavery was determined a state issue?  And today, being at the precipice of decision – I have good faith that state bans of same sex marriage will be deemed unconstitutional…And I frankly am not ready to entertain other options.

Resource Share for Canadian Readers

Good morning all!  I just stumbled across a gem of a resource page and had to share it with you all.

This resource is an up to date (and still being maintained), highly specific + accurate LGBT inclusive fertility law website, specifically focused on Canadian Fertility Law.

As all of us know, navigating legality can be an uncomfortable and overcomplicated matter.  Luckily, our team at Fertility SOURCE can help you navigate all of the nitty gritty stuff.  However, if you’re like me – you want to get a basic scope of procedure so you know what kinds of questions to ask.

If you are an intended parent in Canada, hopefully this blog and our Fertility SOURCE team can answer all of your questions and support you on your journey of building a family of choice.

Information is powerful –  Have it.  Use it.  SHARE it.
