Embryo Protection Bill Misrepresented – Contact Senator with Facts

House Bill 1450 would prevent the intentional destruction of human embryos created by in vitro fertilization.  Opponents told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee that the bill would ban in vitro fertilization in the state and interfere with the ability of physicians to treat pregnancy-related conditions.  Such claims are not true.
HB 1450 expressly allows IFV and amendments have been prepared to make clear that good faith actions connected to IVF would be allowed.  It only would prohibit intentionally killing embryos.
The bill – and existing law – also allows for legitimate medical treatments for pregnancy-related conditions.  HB 1450 would not impact legitimate medical care.
Tell your senator to support HB 1450 and allow clarifying amendments, if needed.
