I personally believe that single women should NOT have access to IVF technology for conceiving children. IVF should only be used for couples who are having difficulty having children, that is what the treatment was intended for anyway. Lesbian couples aren't recognised as being "married", so have to register as single, and it is hard enough and expensive enough to get it as it is. What are they supposed to do? As for the theory that a chld needs a mother and a father to grow up decently, it's crap and you know it, there are too many instances, in my own family even, that prove otherwise. If you want to bring your child up up in a nuclear style family, fine, but don't try and dictate the way other people start and raise their families.
