The Alabama Supreme Court’s Ruling on Frozen Embryos | Updated on 2/29/2024

Dear Patients:

In light of the ruling from the Alabama Supreme Court, many have had questions about potential effects on IVF and embryo disposition. It is reassuring for the state of Alabama that there are already two bills (one sponsored by each political party) to protect IVF. Also, national leaders of both political parties have made statements in favor of protecting IVF.

Here in Iowa, there is currently no legislation that will impact IVF or embryo disposition. Our physicians have been in contact with legislators in the past regarding this issue, and members of both political parties have been very receptive to protecting IVF and options for embryo disposition.
