The idea that Senate Republicans would block a vote to protect access to in vitro fertilization – IVF – is outrageous. After the Alabama Supreme Court’s ruling put IVF on pause in much of the state, and raised issues about whether it would be available in other states, Congressional Republicans rushed to the microphones to proclaim their support for IVF. But when Senator Tammy Duckworth offered a bill to protect access to IVF in every state, Senate Republicans said no. Let’s be clear – every woman in this country should have the freedom to make the decision to have a child, and about one in five American women struggle with infertility and many rely on IVF. This is a basic issue of reproductive freedom. 
We must be clear-eyed about how we got here. When the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, it paved the road for Republican elected officials’ extreme, out-of-touch agenda which has eroded access to reproductive health care for families in Alabama and across the country. No attempts by Republican elected officials to “rebrand” can change the fact that they have spent decades trying to eliminate the constitutional right to choose and undermine reproductive freedom.
President Biden and Vice President Harris will continue to fight to protect access to reproductive health care, including IVF, and call on Congress to restore the protections of Roe v. Wade in federal law for all women in every state.
