Singles Allowed to Undergo Artificial Insemination

Minister of Health Gudlaugur Thór Thórdarson hinted in his reply to an inquiry from Left-Green MP Kolbrún Halldórsdóttir in Althingi Parliament last week that single women in Iceland would soon be given permission to undergo artificial insemination.

The minister did, however, not want to discuss the matter further at this point or reveal any specific dates, Fréttabladid reports.

Thórdarson said a committee is currently working on reviewing regulations on artificial insemination and that it is expected to submit an amendment proposal around Easter.
