Protect IVF: Pass the Access to Family Building Act
The recent Alabama Supreme Court decision has most people asking, “what can we do?”

The ASRM team is working around-the-clock to protect access to IVF, and, while we explore legislative and judicial options, we also urge you to contact your elected officials to cosponsor and demand that they pass the Access to Family Building Act (S.3612/ H.R.7056), which would protect IVF across the country.

Senators Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) and Patty Murray (D-WA) and Congresswoman Susan Wild (D-PA-7) introduced the Access to Family Building Act to ensure the right to build a family is upheld and remains protected, regardless of a person’s zip code.

The choice to build a family is a fundamental right for all Americans

This bill would:

• Establishes a statutory right for an individual to access ART services, such as IVF, and for a healthcare provider to provide ART services

• Establishes an individual’s statutory right regarding the use or disposition of their reproductive genetic materials, including gametes

• Allows the Department of Justice to pursue civil action against any state, government official, individual or entity that violates protections in this Act

• Creates a private right of action for individuals and healthcare providers in states that have limited access to ART
