HFE Victory #3

So far, so good. After backing the use of hybrid embryos and rejecting a ban on ‘saviour siblings‘, the Commons has now voted against Ian Duncan Smith’s amendment to require that all those seeking IVF treatment must provide a father and a mother, thereby excluding lesbian couples from conceiving.

The vote on abortion will happen sometime in the next few hours, but you should really head over to Liberal Conspiracy, where the updates, links and general good times (well, if arguing about reproductive freedom is your idea of a ‘good time’) are plentiful.
