Vicki L. Duncan, MD, FACOG

I recall receiving a call to see if I would perform intrauterine insemination for a lesbian couple in the late 90's. I contacted my malpractice carrier for legal advice, and was told that if I refused for them, but did so for a married, heterosexual couple, I would likely be sued, and they would not provide coverage. It also extended to a non-married couples.

That was when I decided to no longer perform intrauterine inseminations. This occurred in Sonoma County, California.
