New Federal Bill Introduced to Protect IVF
The Access to Family Building Act (linked below) has just been introduced in Congress by U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (IL), U.S. Senator and Chair of the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations Patty Murray (WA), and Representative Susan Wild (PA). Their bill comes in response to the 2022 ruling on Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court (linked below) that caused many to rethink how the law can affect their family decisions – although the ruling did not restrict access to IVF.
The Access to Family Building Act is intended to ensure that the states cannot restrict a person’s right to create and build a family, regardless of where they live or who they love. In addition, the bill would establish a right for IVF patients to continue their treatments under a new statutory framework while authorizing how their sperm or egg cells are used in their procedures and without interference from those states that are now restricting access to abortions.
This bill is supported by Resolve and the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (linked below).
