Alabama Supreme Court Rules Frozen Embryos Are People

HeadlineFeb 21, 2024

In a decision that has shocked many in the medical community, the Supreme Court of Alabama has ruled that frozen embryos should be considered people. The ruling came in a case filed by a couple who sued a fellow patient who accidentally dropped a test tube, destroying the frozen embryos of the couple. The Alabama justices ruled the frozen embryos should be afforded the same protection as babies under the Wrongful Death of a Minor Act. Reproductive rights advocates say the ruling could result in the end of in vitro fertilization in Alabama and some other states.
