Act Now ImageRESOLVE, 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. RESOLVE is greatly involved in advocating for the infertility community on both the federal and state level.

Federal Advocacy

One day it will happen…access for all! That’s our goal. Anyone struggling to build a family deserves access to all family building options. We have several pieces of federal legislation in both the House and the Senate. And we need your help. Take a few moments to read about our Federal issues and learn how you can take action. Use your voice and your story to make a difference. Take action today.

Make Adoption Accessible for All

RESOLVE, together with 150 other organizations in the Adoption Tax Credit Working Group advocates that the Adoption Tax Credit (ATC) should be refundable. That way families with lower financial resources can get the benefit of the credit so they can afford to adopt a child in need. It’s an extra little boost that helps bring children and loving parents together.

Send a letter to your U.S. Senators and Representative asking them to support the Adoption Tax Credit Refundability Act of 2019, HR 2965/S 1652 today.

State Advocacy

Colorado

Great news! Our Colorado Building Families Act (HB20-1158) passed the full House and now moves to the Senate. We need you to make your voice heard and contact your Senator about your support for this bill. As a constituent, your voice can make the difference between a “Yes” or “No” vote.

Please send this message now to your Senator and ask them to support the Building Families Act to help all Coloradans access the standard of care they deserve to build their families.

New York

Send a letter to your state legislators to support Child-Parent Security Act and remove the ban on compensated gestational surrogacy. New York is still one of only three states in the country than bans compensated gestational surrogacy. It’s time to change that! With the support of Governor Cuomo, join our coalition and make change happen.

New York legislators need to hear from us . . . from YOU!

Please send this letter now to voice your support to remove the ban on surrogacy in New York.

Rhode Island

Rhode Island’s parentage law has not kept up with the reality of how we form our families and that leaves children vulnerable. The current law is 40 years old and only two states, Kentucky and Mississippi, are as out of date.

But we have a real chance to change that this year, by passing the Rhode Island Uniform Parentage Act (RIUPA). The House version of the bill, H 7541, will have its Judiciary committee hearing this Wednesday evening, 2/26. This bill, WITH key amendments, will update state law to be clear, consistent, and equal.

It has been TOO long with an unfair, out-of-date and out-of-step parentage law in Rhode Island, but there is real momentum to pass the RIUPA this year. Take action today to contact your State Representative to help ensure we do!

South Dakota

Opponents of in vitro fertilization and surrogacy wasted no time in introducing an anti-surrogacy bill that swiftly passed the House of Representatives this month. The bill would limit family building options in South Dakota, and we cannot let this extreme legislation pass in the Senate!

The bill will be heard in the Senate Health and Human Services Committee next week on February 26. These Committee members need to hear from YOU why this legislation will hurt the family building community and must be stopped.

Send this letter now to the Senate Health and Human Services Committee Members requesting that they oppose this dangerous bill.
