British taxpayers could soon begin paying for in vitro fertilization for transgender people who were born female and had a male sex change, according to The Daily Mail.
Barrett said dozens of his transgender patients have frozen their eggs and sperm so that they could become parents in the future. He said cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy often freeze their eggs and sperm, too.
“As a matter of principle, anybody who loses their fertility as a result of standard [British National Health System] treatment should be able to preserve their fertility,” he said.
There are many concerns surrounding the new procedure, including that it could take away tax dollars from more critically-needed medical procedures. Source
