California Supreme Court Gay-Marriage Ruling Reinforces Top Bay Area Fertility Specialists' Support for Same-Sex Couples
Date:7/23/2008

IVF clinic expands welcome to out-of-state intended parents

SAN RAMON, Calif., July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The recent California Supreme Court decision to allow gay couples to marry strengthens the commitment of the Reproductive Science Center of the Bay Area (RSC), one of the state's leading fertility practices, to serving gays and lesbians for infertility treatment.

"California's legalization of same-sex marriage supports RSC's long-held views that procreation is a natural human desire and being a parent is a fulfilling spiritual experience for everyone," said Dr. Susan P. Willman, Medical Director of RSC's Orinda's clinic. "Unfortunately, not all infertility clinics will treat same-sex couples. We believe that the physiological and psychological concerns of all prospective parents are pretty much the same and warmly welcome gay and lesbian couples here."

The new ruling has triggered an influx of same-sex couples traveling to California for marriage ceremonies. With that in mind, RSC is expanding its support to same-sex couples nationwide, offering medical and emotional support to any such couples interested in starting families. RSC has also launched a new Web site dedicated to the specific needs of parents who seek third-party services, http://thirdpartyfertility.com/.

RSC embraces the American Society for Reproductive Medicine ethics committee's statement that it is their "ethical duty to treat single persons and gay and lesbian couples equally with married couples." Some programs will treat single women and lesbian couples but will not assist single men or gay couples to have children.

About Reproductive Science Center of the San Francisco Bay Area

Established in 1983, RSC was one of the earliest IVF facilities in the United States, begun just two years after the nation's first successful IVF treatment. RSC was among the first in the U.S. to report a successful pregnancy from an egg donated from one woman to another for gestation and delivery, and was also responsible for the nation's second successful transfer of a previously frozen embryo into a mother's uterus. Today, RSC's staff of five infertility physicians with a collective 85 years' experience, practice in five locations in San Ramon, Orinda, San Jose, Fremont, and Modesto. RSC is a member of IntegraMed, the leading operator of fertility centers in the U.S. For more information, visit http://www.rscbayarea.com or http://thirdpartyfertility.com/.
