Abstract
The purpose of this paper was to see whether Chapter 6 and Chapter 7 in The Genetic Integrity Act have implications for the infertile in the target groups single people, homosexual and heterosexual couples.
Infertility affects between 15 and 20 percent of the population of childbearing age in Sweden and according to WHO, the World Health Organization, it is classified as a disease.

Infertility affects between 15 and 20 percent of the population of childbearing age in Sweden and according to WHO, the World Health Organization, it is classified as a disease. Many of the affected can testify about mental illness, not to be implied or seen by either the environment or health care. Single people and homosexual couples also need help creating a family because of biological reasons.
I analyzed three bills that are discussed in the 2000s, using “systematisk textkondensering”. The result I recieved I put in relation to queer theory's perspective on alienation and heteronormativity. With this I could see that the law is based on the traditional family image, two people of opposite sex, in a relationship that has the ability to create a child using their own eggs and sperm. The couple who live according to this norm, is rewarded. However, those couples who need the help of the donor must submit to authority and confess that they do not belong to the heteronormativity. Far out in the periphery are the single people who have no legal right to get help from healthcare to have a family.
My conclusion is that the law is created by our standards and those we choose to view as the right thing. The consequence of this is an alienation and mental illness for those afflicted. (Less)
