The influencers who fought for equal IVF access for same-sex couples | ITV News

ITV News published this video item, entitled “The influencers who fought for equal IVF access for same-sex couples | ITV News” – below is their description.

An influencer couple credited with bringing about one of the most significant changes to IVF access have said their achievement has “blindsided” them “in the best of ways.”

Known to their social media followers as ‘Wegan’, married couple Whitney and Megan Bacon-Evans have long campaigned for equal access to fertility services, regardless of sexuality.

And just last month, the government announced it will drop its policy to make same-sex couples pay for up to 12 rounds of artificial insemination before they can qualify for IVF.
