Federal candidates must pressure provinces for fertility treatment funding, B.C. advocates say

Coverage for IVF in most parts of Canada is poor and many people are arguing we should fix that. I’m not totally opposed to better funded IVF, but 1) there are WAY higher priorities in our healthcare system and 2) almost all of the people who need IVF need it because they’re trying to have kids in their 30s or 40s.
It would be much much better if we just supported people having kids at younger ages with things like better childcare, better subsides, and real strict rules against anti-parent (especially anti mother) discrimination in workplaces.
It would also be helpful if we dealt with the endocrine disrupters we’ve dumped in our environment.
