A grieving widow has won a Supreme Court injunction to save her dead husband's sperm after a Brisbane IVF clinic informed her it would be destroyed.
Kate Bazley launched the action after the Wesley Monash clinic told her it was against their policy to provide IVF treatment to a single woman.
This is why churches, with their bronze age attitudes towards women and fertility, should not be allowed to run hospitals. Ms Bazley is not a single woman, she is a widow. The last thing her husband left her was a chance at another child. Who could stand in her way? Who could pick up the phone and tell a widow that they are going to destroy the last living part of her dead husband. Why didn't they come clean and piss on his grave.
This is repulsive, even for a church. The Uniting Church is supposed to be such the meek and mild church but they show themselves to be as backward and hatefull as the worst of them.
I'm gonna be muttering about this one in my sleep now.
