The Virginia House of Delegates overwhelmingly passed HB1—the Virginia Personhood Bill. Personhood Bills endanger the practice of IVF and the treatment of infertility. If an embryo is defined as a person and is given the same rights as a person this could make it nearly impossible for doctors to practice IVF in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Doctors and patients could be held criminally liable for anything that happens to that embryo. RESOLVE is opposed to ALL Personhood Bills.
Barbara Collura, Executive Director of RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, announced the organization's position on the legislation in Richmond, Virginia on February 16, 2012. Virginia Reproductive Endocrinologists and infertility patients also commented on HB1.
