In Alabama, patients are praying for a change of heart on access to IVF

·1 min

After struggling with infertility for two years, a couple in Alabama had their plans for in vitro fertilization (IVF) put on hold due to a recent Supreme Court decision. Some fertility clinics in the state paused their IVF services following the ruling that declared frozen embryos as children under the Wrongful Death of a Minor Act. The decision was based on the belief that life begins at fertilization. The clinics, including Alabama Fertility Specialists, cited legal risks for their decision. Couples affected by the pause are now relying on state legislation to protect IVF procedures.
