A Letter in Support of Regulating the IVF Industry

Letter sent to the United States Senate on May 23, 2024

From the moment of conception, every child is a gift from God, inherently valuable, worthy of protection and care, and possesses the right to be born, not contingent upon the mechanism by which they were conceived. A desire to expand the family is generally a good desire, but there are serious ethical concerns specific to the practice of in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF results in harm to children and harm to mothers, many of whom are themselves unaware of the complications and moral concerns associated with IVF. 

We urge legislators to develop and implement a system of federal oversight that protects and informs women and ensures embryos are treated with care, even as we oppose the general practice of IVF.

This letter was sent to the United States Senate on May 23, 2024.
