Government's rush to embrace the 'new normal' downgrades the natural family
BBC2 recently aired 'The Vikings are Coming'. It's not what you think. It wasn't about Vikings. Instead it was a documentary about Denmark's thriving export market in the sperm of Danish men.
The programme followed a number of English women - single women and lesbian couples - buying sperm from a sperm bank in Denmark so they could try and become pregnant.
We watched as they browsed catalogues of sperm donors trying to find one who matched their specifications. Two of the women said it was like "shopping on Amazon".
