RESOLVE Says "No" to Pending Fertility Legislation

RESOLVE,  Mar 3, 2009

In a call-to-action to its members, RESOLVE speaks out against SB 169, a bill in the Georgia legislature aimed at regulating the state's fertility industry. A hearing on the bill before the Senate Health & Human Services Committee will take place on Thursday, March 5.

RESOLVE will be testifying as will a number of physicians in Georgia. RESOLVE and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) oppose the bill.

RESOLVE encourages Georgia residents to attend the March 5 hearing at 9 am in Room 450 of the State Capitol. They also ask residents to contact the Committee members and their state senators to voice their opposition to the bill.

"If the bill passes the Committee tomorrow, it may go to a vote in the Senate as soon as Friday," says Barbara Collura, RESOLVE's executive director. "We need to show the Committee that we don't support this bill that will restrict the available access to care for the women and men diagnosed with infertility in the state of Georgia."
