“Infertility patients fear abortion bans could affect access to IVF treatment,” NPR reports

NPR recently reported on the fears raised among those struggling with infertility when the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

“I’m sitting here desperate for babies — desperate,” a woman in Michigan named Melissa told NPR. “And this can seriously impact whether I can grow my family, whether I can afford to, whether I want to risk it.”

NPR reports that this concern could be very real, according to a law professor at Northern Kentucky University with expertise in reproductive health.
