Across virtually every demographic category, LGBT persons are embracing two of the most traditional institutions in the world, marriage and family, and demanding equality in both areas. The goal is not only equality on all fronts, but for the families that we form to be healthy. However, the information that supports the formation of healthy families may not be getting out to the LGBT community as completely as it should.
One example I’ve noticed is that gay men seem to be having multiples, twins or greater, as a result of surrogacy and in vitro fertilization (IVF).
I say, “noticed” because this is currently anecdotal information with no scientific data. It is still of concern. According to the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), an organization dedicated to promoting and advancing standards for the practice of assisted reproductive technology (ART), the objective of infertility treatment should be the birth of a single, healthy child.
