Myself and my wife would love to have a family of our own and pass the love we have for one another onto a new member of the family. I believe we have every right to be able to get help through the NHS as any heterosexual couple can. Unfortunately we do not have the option of this at the moment and have to pay nearly £7000 for a try with IVF or £1800 for sperm insemination  (3 attempts). We, like many other gay couples have just as much love, stability and comfort to give a child as anyone else would but it is made 10 times harder by having to find such a large sum of money to attempt IVF.

Gay marriage is legal and accepted now so why in this modern world we live in would we not be treated fairly and equally as a straight couple? We did not "choose" to be gay just like a heterosexual couple didn't "choose" to be straight but we seem to be penalised for loving someone of the same sex? How is that equality? 

I am trying to get 100,000 signatures so this can go to parliament for debate.
