Nevada Democratic lawmakers announced Tuesday they were co-sponsoring federal legislation to protect Americans’ rights to access in-vitro fertilization (IVF), on the heels of a decision by the Alabama Supreme Court which ruled that embryos created through IVF should be considered children. IVF is assisted reproductive technology where an egg is fertilized outside the womb and the embryo implanted into the uterus, allowing individuals to conceive in cases of infertility.
