In a new dramatic move by the World Health Organization (WHO), single men and women who have no known medical issues and strain to find a sexual partner to have children with will reportedly now be considered as “disabled” or “infertile”. In doing this, the organization seeks to change the definition of disabilities, according to new guidelines set to be announced later, in order to categorize the people without sexual partners as “infertile”.
WHO has interpreted infertility as the inability to conceive after 12 months or more of sexual intercourse. The authors of this revised definition say it is a move aimed at providing all individuals “the right to reproduce.” Heterosexual single men and women, as well as gay men and women will have the same level of priority when accessing public funding for In-vitro Fertilization treatment (IVF). However, these new WHO terms are not official.
