Major Legislature Victory in Virginia to Kill the So-called “Personhood” Legislation

On February 23rd, the Virginia Senate voted to kill the so-called “Personhood” legislation that could have hindered or outlawed infertility treatments like in vitro fertilization. Just the prior week, lawmakers were telling us this bill (Virginia HB 1) was “unstoppable,” yet testimony from infertility patients and physicians convinced the majority of senators the bill needed further review. Unfortunately, there are 15 other states considering the issue in the form of either legislation or a ballot initiative, including Alabama, California, Florida, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin.
