Your story can have an impact on removing harmful stigmas associated with infertility and family building options. Tell legislators why protecting family building options, like IVF, is critical or share your personal experience with RESOLVE.
Tell lawmakers to protect all family building options.
Everyone should feel safe and supported in their pursuit of building a family. Yet right now, in the wake of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision, laws restricting reproductive health care remain a serious threat to people trying to get pregnant. In the very near future, we expect proposed legislation that may restrict access to in vitro fertilization (IVF) in states across the country.

Elected officials need to hear directly from those who have been challenged on the journey to parenthood to truly understand what access to a full range of health care options means.
