My spouse and I started our family via reciprocal in vitro fertilization (IVF). The overturning of Roe v. Wade, however, poses a threat to IVF access and to others who want to start their families through IVF. While IVF remains legal in every state as of this writing, a new campaign is seeking to ensure it stays that way.
Fight for Families is a communications campaign launched by RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association. RESOLVE explains that ever since Dobbs, the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that overturned the national right to abortion, reproductive rights are in the hands of state lawmakers. “New legislation intended to restrict or ban abortion may include language that is unclear or specifically targets in-vitro embryos. That means fertility treatments like IVF could become inaccessible, unaffordable, and out of reach for those who need it.”
