Support Pro-Family Legislation that helps Americans Build Their Families.

Protect the Availability of IVF in the U.S.

One in 6 people worldwide are impacted by infertility and many more need to access medical treatments, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), to build or grow their family. Since 1981, IVF has provided hope for those who need
medical treatment to build the family of their choice and is responsible for the birth of over 2% of all babies born in the U.S. each year. Today, IVF and the standard of care is under threat. We urge Congress to immediately pass
meaningful legislation that upholds the standard of care and to protect those who seek and deserve this care.

Expand Access to IVF in the U.S.

Far too many people do not have access to medical treatments, such as IVF, to grow their family, due to lack of comprehensive health insurance coverage for this care. This includes federal employees, our military, and even Veterans. It’s time to close coverage gaps and ensure that every person in America has access to comprehensive fertility insurance and can fulfill their dream of a family. We urge Congress to pass policies that are pro-family and guarantee that comprehensive medical care for family building is available to all.
