RESOLVE, the only patient advocacy group in the U.S. that fights for the rights of women and men who are infertile has seen an increasing need to bring together the community to ensure that our voices are heard.

Adoption Tax Credit S. 937 and H.R. 2476

“To provide that human life shall be deemed to begin with fertilization,”
S. 231, H.R. 586, and H.R. 681
RESOLVE opposes all Personhood initiatives and urges all Americans to oppose any anti-family legislation as it undermines access to safe and reliable infertility medical treatments.

Send a letter of opposition to your U.S. Representative and Senators right now.
Women Veterans and Families Health Services Act, S. 700 and H.R. 1681
Make #IVF4Vets a permanent program. Our advocates were successful in securing funding so that the Veterans Administration can offer IVF for wounded Vets in FY 2017 and FY 2018, but it did not lift the ban permanently. We will ask Congress to make #IVF4Vets permanent through passage of the Women Veterans and Families Health Services Act. Send a letter today to your Senators and Representative and show your support for our veterans.
ACT NOW in New Jersey!
New Jersey has the chance to join the growing list of states that provide insurance coverage for fertility preservation for those facing chemotherapy or other medically necessary treatment that threatens their ability to have children. While New Jersey currently requires insurance coverage for infertility treatment, it does not include coverage for those at risk of iatrogenic (or medically-induced) infertility. S 2133 \ A 3150 addresses this gap in insurance coverage so patients do not have to choose between effective medical treatment and a future chance at parenthood.
Please send this letter to key lawmakers in the state to voice your support for passing this bill this year. Thank you!
