FREE TREATMENT: Spain will offer the benefit from January 2019

THE Spanish government has agreed to restore a policy offering free fertility treatment to lesbians and single women.

Mariano Rajoy’s conservative government took away the benefit in 2014, which was previously available to those groups.

The agreement comes as Madrid celebrated LGBTQ+ Pride month last weekend.

Following its approval at a cabinet meeting on Friday, the measure is set to come into effect from January 2019.

“Today the misogyny is over,” tweeted Minister for Equality, Soledad Murillo.

It is just the latest socialist measure Pedro Sanchez’s new government has announced following his first month in power.

The move could help towards increasing birth rates in Spain, which has one of the lowest in Europe.

Last year the total number of births were outnumbered by the number of deaths, at its fastest speed in almost eight decades.
