Who criminalized IVF. MAGA Republicans.

125 House Republicans including Speaker Mike Johnson back a ‘life at conception’ bill without any IVF exception.

The Alabama Supreme Court ruled that frozen embryos are "unborn children." This Congress, 125 House Republicans — including Speaker Mike Johnson — have cosponsored the "Life at Conception Act," which states that the term "human being" includes "all stages of life, including the moment of fertilization, cloning, or other moment at which an individual member of the human species comes into being."

The bill does not include any exception for in vitro fertilization (IVF), a reproductive treatment that allows mothers to fertilize several eggs outside the womb in order to increase the chances of a viable pregnancy." - Business Insider

MAGA Republicans are furiously back pedaling now that their scheme to completely ban abortions is exposed. Don't fall for it. Check the official records with this StoryMap for the 125 MAGA Republican and 19 MAGA Senators who voted for Life At Inception.

Fears of criminalization

"Fallout has been swift after the Alabama Supreme Court declared last week that frozen embryos are considered children under wrongful death statutes in a chilling ruling. At least three fertility clinics have paused IVF in the state citing fears of criminalization if they follow the standard of care for IVF, which involves storing and sometimes discarding unused embryos, and Republican politicians are twisting themselves into pretzels trying to say that their anti-abortion stance shouldn’t affect fertility treatments like IVF.

Bill would also ban all abortions nationwide

The Alabama ruling gives fertilized eggs legal protection and—wouldn’t you know it—more than 100 sitting members of Congress want to do the same thing nationwide with a fetal personhood bill. In January 2023, House Republicans introduced H.R. 431, the Life at Conception Act, and the bill text says it would “implement equal protection for the right to life of each born and preborn human person,” defining “person” as “each and every member of the species homo sapiens at all stages of life, including the moment of fertilization.” There’s no carveout for IVF and the bill would also ban all abortions nationwide." - Jezebel
