The Alabama IVF Ruling Is a Threat to Us All

  • by: Care2 Team
  • recipient: U.S. Congress, Alabama Legislature

The recent decision by the Alabama Supreme Court to treat frozen embryos as people, allowing for liability if they're destroyed, is a significant and worrying change for reproductive rights and in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments. This first-ever ruling puts at risk the hopes and dreams of hundreds of thousands of families who depend on IVF and similar fertility treatments annually.

Sign the petition to demand legislative intervention to protect IVF and reproductive freedom in Alabama and across the United States.

With over 11 states defining life as starting at fertilization, this ruling's effects go way beyond Alabama. It puts at risk access to fertility treatments and birth control, chipping away further at reproductive rights. This decision could make the already heart-wrenching journey of IVF even harder, risking legal trouble for patients and clinics for doing something that's a normal part of IVF.

These steps not only attack individuals' rights to make deeply personal health decisions but also push us towards a narrow definition of human life that greatly limits reproductive options. With legal risks now looming over fertility treatments, the hope of becoming a parent might slip away for many.

Sign this petition to urge lawmakers to enact clear protections for IVF and reproductive healthcare, to ensure that the pursuit of family does not become a legal battleground.
