Lesbian PM Or Not, Serbia Blocks Gays’ Path To Parenthood

When the gay partner of Serbia’s prime minister gave birth to a son in February, reportedly via artificial insemination, it was seen by LGBT rights activists everywhere as a historic milestone. Not only was Ana Brnabic one of the world’s first openly gay heads of government. She became the first prime minister to have a child with a same-sex partner while in office. But any hope within Serbia’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community that Brnabic would expand the rights of other same-sex couples quickly dissipated. Within a month, Health Minister Zlatibor Loncar imposed a ban against anyone with a “history of homosexual relations during the last five years” from donating “reproductive cells” in Serbia for artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, or even for laboratory tests.
