State lawmakers from both parties introduced bills last week with the goal of protecting in vitro fertilization (IVF) providers from legal liabilities following a February 23 ruling by the state Supreme Court. State Senators Tim Melson and Larry Stutts, two north Alabama doctors who serve over the Senate Healthcare Committee, are carrying two bills to shield entities and individuals in providing IVF services from criminal and civil actions. Senator Larry Stutts led members of the Senate Healthcare Committee to move forward bills they believe address the concerns of patients and providers. In the House, State Representative Terri Collins advanced a bill expected to be identical to the Senate bill which could be voted on in both chambers on the same day and signed by the governor. Both chambers passed bills on Thursday, but the Senate bill was amended, thus requiring a vote next week to determine which version will end up on the governor’s desk. Read more here.
