Alabama Supreme Court IVF Ruling

It was a busy day for news, and the announcement from the Alabama Supreme Court is extremely unsettling. The ruling against IVF treatments has sent many women scrambling who were about to receive transfers of the embryo, or have embryos in storage for when they are ready to start a family. Anyone who has received infertility treatments knows they are a carefully planned, well timed event. There are women who choose IVF for other reasons besides infertility, such as a cancer diagnosis. 

With the Republicans attacks on women’s reproductive health, I knew infertility treatments and the attack on them was just a matter of time. This is something I am very passionate about since my son was conceived through IVF. I understand all too well the heartache of infertility and the miracle of life that infertility treatments can bring to a family. It was an  absolutely life-changing gift science has given to my family and so many other families. My son is almost 23 and anyone who meets him finds him truly an amazing human being. I can barely remember life before him. Without IVF, he would not be here, and he was meant to be here. 

With Republicans currently attacking women’s reproductive health, I knew it was time to speak out to protect our rights, protect families rights. We need to control our bodies, and not leave it up to right wing politicians with their own rigid agendas.
