Ministry and Age Restrictions on Coverage
Posted 23 October 2017 - 05:37 PM
I will briefly tell my story.
I became pregnant at 43 and 44 and carried to 13 weeks. Since the age of 44 I have tried desperately to find any clinic in Canada that would provide me with invitro fertilization without success. 3-years of my life has been spent trying to obtain treatment for my disability (which is what multiple miscarriage is) and I keep having the door slammed in my face. This to me is a human rights violation, why is this not being pursued by any lawyers? The government cannot prove that older women are less likely to respond to invitro or less likely to carry to term. I can't afford a donor egg. I was almost blackmailed by one doctor into paying for one. That is what is going on out there. Everyone else has had the opportunity to try invitro except me.
