Dr. Ziegler offers expert commentary to the New York Times and NJTV

Two lesbian couples in New Jersey are suing the commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance, claiming discrimination against their sexual orientation. The couples were denied coverage because of a mandate that requires most women under age 35 to demonstrate their infertility through “two years of unprotected sexual intercourse.”

Both The New York Times and NJTV covered the story and called on our own Dr. Ziegler to comment. He told the Times that the mandate is “a double standard.” In his NJTV interview, he added that “insurance companies need to readdress the definition of how they define infertility because our society is changing and they need to change with it.”

He had more to say about this issue in both stories. You can read the New York Times article here, and the NJTV article here. After you do, let us know your thoughts on this important topic.
