RESOLVE’s statements regarding the Alabama Supreme Court ruling

Resolve: The National Infertility Associate is working hard to help people affected by the Alabama Supreme Court ruling

This week has been a rollercoaster of emotions as we witnessed the unfolding events in Alabama. Even if you are not directly affected, it’s crucial for every American who cares about family building issues to understand the impact of the Alabama Supreme Court ruling that defines a frozen embryo as a child.

Here are RESOLVE’s statements regarding the events unfolding in Alabama:

  • On Monday, February 19th 2024, RESOLVE released our initial reaction regarding the Alabama Supreme Court Ruling.
  • After Alabama clinics began to pause IVF treatments for patients, RESOLVE released this statement.
  • February 23rd, RESOLVE reacted to the breaking news that companies that provide safe transportation for frozen embryos were suspending service to and from Alabama.

As of February 23rd: Legislation has been introduced in the Alabama state legislature to restore access to IVF. We are evaluating this legislation, consulting with our partners, including the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, and assessing its potential impact.

A recap of what we’re doing:

  • Supporting Alabama Resources: Our support team mobilized support group hosts from around the country to bring support services to Alabama patients. You can see a full list of resources here.
  • Media Engagement: We provided RESOLVE representatives, including staff, patient advocates, and physicians to the media. They have responded to over 100 media inquiries worldwide since Sunday. You can read some of the coverage here.
  • Social Media Presence: RESOLVE’s social media channels have been a consistent source of information. Your voices amplify our message of solidarity.

What can you do?

  • Advocate to Congress: We urge our community to register for RESOLVE’s Virtual Federal Advocacy Day, in partnership with ASRM on May 14th, when we will meet with Members of Congress and talk about pro-family legislation, including the Access to Family Building Act, for all who struggle to build a family.
  • Send a letter to Congress to ask your lawmakers to show their support by signing on as co-sponsors for the Access to Family Building Act that will keep IVF legal and available everywhere in the U.S.
  • Stay Informed: Sign up for the RESOLVE Advocacy Network (RAN) to get updates and opportunities to advocate for family building rights.
  • Donate: Your support fuels our fight against anti-family legislation and ensures access to care for all. Every donation makes a difference.

We are putting out a call for unity.

Let’s stand with the Alabama community, show our support, and together, let’s fight for families. We are here to address your questions and concerns regarding the situation in Alabama.

Stand with RESOLVE, stand with Alabama families.
