Personhood Bill Defeated in Virginia!

The ‘Personhood’ Bill threatened IVF and other fertility treatments in Virginia.  If you were one of the many citizens who spoke up against this bill, your voice made a difference!  According to RESOLVE, “Virginia residents sent more than 1,700 emails to their Delegates and Senators, made hundreds of phone calls to voice their opinion, and RESOLVE made sure that every Senator (especially those on the Committee) received an official letter with the reasons why HB 1 is anti-family.”  Visit RESOLVE’s website  for additional ways you can become involved and advocate for infertility justice.

Although this is a wonderful step, the fight is not yet over.   The bill has been sent back to a committee and pushed back to next year’s legislation session. In addition, 12 other states have started to introduce Personhood Bills and Ballot Initiatives- click here to read more on the status of these bills.
