Some of the LGBT parenting stories I haven’t otherwise mentioned this week—coincidentally, all with an international flavor:
- Fertility service IVF Australia is launching an advertising campaign targeting lesbians who want to get pregnant, and gay men (“healthy, intelligent, and generous”) to be sperm donors.
- Israeli lawyer Irit Rosenblum discusses some of the family law cases she championed that helped set the stage for the March 6 ruling that recognized the genetic and gestational lesbian moms in a couple as co-equal parents.
- In a piece in the New York Times Style Magazine, “One Schlep Forward,” Gideon Lewis-Kraus writes about a pilgrimage to Ukraine that he took with his gay dad and 50,000 Hasidic Jews.
- The Swiss Parliament’s upper house, the Council of States, voted March 14 to give same-sex couples the right to adopt children. The measure now goes to the lower house, the National Council.
- An appeal court in the U.K. ruled that a lesbian couple must allow the sperm donor of their two-year-old boy to be involved in his life—more than the limited contact the couple wanted to permit.
