(FOX 11) - The World Health Organization says being single is a disability.
It's now classifying people without a sexual partner as "Infertile."
The group says the change means people seeking invitro fertilization to have children will receive the same priority as couples.
This would apply to heterosexual single men and women as well as single gay men and women and would make public funding for IVF available to all.
Critics call it an overreach by a global medical organization.
