IVF Liability Protection

  • The Hill notes,
    • “Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) signed a bill Wednesday March 6 protecting in vitro fertilization (IVF) providers from the state Supreme Court’s recent ruling that frozen embryos are to be considered children. 
    • “The legislation, titled SB 159, will shield IVF providers from lawsuit or criminal charges over the “death or damage to an embryo,” during the IVF process. The bill passed by both the state Senate and House shortly before heading to Ivey’s desk Wednesday night.”
