The Alabama Supreme court has recently passed a law stating that frozen embryos have the same rights to human life as children.

This law poses dangerous implications for the practice of IVF in Alabama. It threatens those who handle embryos with serious criminal offences if handled incorrectly.

The hand of IVF clinics have been forced into suspension as those handling embryos can now face legal action and serious criminal charges.

What does this mean for the future of IVF ?
