IVF in Virginia and Roe vs. Wade

IVF in Virginia and Roe vs. Wade

At present, In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and the use of embryos in Virginia is not impacted by the recent Supreme Court decision overturning Roe vs. Wade. Nothing has changed at present. Unless Virginia legislators pass a future law to designate embryos as “persons”, then IVF care in Virginia will not be impacted by the ruling in the recent Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health decision.

How can you help?

We strongly encourage you to reach out to your Virginia state representatives, the governor’s office and other influential elected state officials to make them aware of the harm that a “personhood” bill could do to the ability of Virginians to have a child through common fertility treatments like In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).  The first successful IVF birth in the United States was in Norfolk, Virginia in 1980, at Eastern Virginia Medical School. Our IVF program began a few years later and over the last 35 years we have dedicated our professional lives to help thousands of Virginians have a child through the miracle of IVF.
