Rainbow rising in Spain.

Spain extended the availability of free in-vitro fertilization (IVF) to lesbians, transgender and non-binary people who do not identify as either male or female.

This development came after Spanish health minister Carolina Darias signed an order granting more women access to medically assisted reproduction in Spain’s public health system.

This is part of the Socialist-led Spanish government’s drive for equality.

Fertility treatment is actually free in Spain. However, six years ago, the conservative Popular Party government limited it only to heterosexual women who have a partner. Non-heterosexual people have to pay for private treatment if they avail of fertility treatment.
