Washington, D.C. – Today, Democrats in the U. S. Senate led by Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) will hold a vote on the so-called “Right to IVF Act,” a package combining four extreme bills that take an ‘anything goes’ approach to fertility treatment. The legislation funds assisted reproductive technologies with no respect for created embryos or safeguards to protect couples.

Ahead of the vote, Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser slammed the bill in a statement:

“This bill is a solution in search of a problem — fertility treatments are widely available and there are no serious efforts to curb thoughtful care for those experiencing infertility. This is a sweeping bill that protects the industry without protections for parents or their embryos. The bill would allow for genetic testing of embryos, selective reduction abortions and even treatments using human cloning. Instead of serious legislation that balances complex issues, this is a free-for-all for the fertility industry. This bill funnels more money into their billion-dollar business and forces taxpayers to foot the bill.”

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America is a network of more than one million pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
