Gay couples in Brazil looking to become parents now have another option. The country's national association of doctors has drafted a new set of rules for in vitro fertilization allowing same-sex couples and single people to qualify for the process.
The organization says the change in rules "was a demand of modern society."
The new set of standards also allow for fertilization using eggs or sperm from the deceased with prior approval. The prior set of rules, in place for nearly two decades, barred gay couples from qualifying for the procedure.
