The Alabama Supreme Court's IVF Ruling

On February 20, 2024, The Alabama Supreme Court in the case James LePage, et al. v. The Center for Reproductive Medicine and Mobile Infirmary Association ruled in favor of the plaintiffs who suffered a loss of their frozen offspring as a result of an accident at a fertility clinic.

The issue now is what happens to in vitro fertilization (IVF) in the state of Alabama? The state House and Senate both passed emergency bills to protect current IVF treatments while not challenging the ruling.

What is the most consistent pro-life position on this issue?

Is it possible to practice a form of IVF that attempts to be 100% pro-life?

Chelsea and I discuss important sections of the ruling, a concurring opinion, and the dissenting option, and ask and answer questions about IVF.
