Gay Marriage Accepted in Norway

As of January 1, 2009 gay couples have had the right to marry in Norway.  Another change in the law accepted at the same time was an amendment to the Biotechnology Act to give cohabiting or married lesbians access to assisted reproductive technology.  The biological mother's partner will be granted co-mother status if she consents to the fertilization of her partner.  More information can be obtained at
