Third Alabama Clinic Stops IVF Program After Court Ruled Frozen Embryos Have Same Rights as Humans

HeadlineFeb 23, 2024

In reproductive rights news, a third Alabama fertility clinic has halted its in vitro fertilization program in the wake of this week’s Alabama Supreme Court ruling that frozen embryos are children. The decision, which has been met with outrage from families, legal groups and medical providers, opens doctors and patients up to possible wrongful death lawsuits. Biden’s campaign manager Julie Chávez Rodríguez said, “What is happening in Alabama right now is only possible because Donald Trump’s Supreme Court justices overturned Roe v. Wade.”
