(Worthy News) – If the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ruling by upholding Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban, some have speculated that the ruling could criminalize certain aspects of the fertility industry, particularly In Vitro Fertilization.
IVF consists of manually combining sperm and egg in a laboratory dish before transferring the embryo into a woman’s uterus. Pro-life organizations such as Illinois Right to Life have warned that IVF results in the killing of unborn children in multiple ways, citing research that shows embryos often die when they’re discarded or fail to survive being frozen or thawed.
