MisConception: LGBTQ Fertility and Fighting the FDA

As more than 23,000 delegates from over 195 countries convene this week in Washington, D.C., for the XIX International AIDS Conference, LGBTQ rights advocates and others in California are trying to raise awareness about FDA policies and guidelines that they say place undue and unnecessary restrictions on LGBTQ individuals looking to conceive--policies they say were informed by concerns around the transmission HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
