    So, if a woman freezes her embryos for 5 years, does that mean that on the child’s 16th birthday they can legally drink alcohol?

    Wow. You have to be truly brain-dead to take anything she’s saying remotely seriously. How embryologically illiterate do you have to be?

    So are they only allowed now to attempt to fertilize and transplant (implant?) one egg at a time to make sure no extra eggs get fertilized or no extra fertilized eggs than wanted attach and grow?

    The whole goal of the anti-abortion law was to raise (republican) birth rates. With this law there will be less IVF. Are they trying to force couples to have children asap?

    The Washington Post has an article going into the ruling and how it is full to the brim with bible quotes and Xtian reasons why these are now legally declared children. Theocracy in full force.
    One of the comments, noting how the Bible was used extensively, said that we should argue that the “children” all have everlasting life so, the embryos are fine either way ;D If they are going to use that book to write rulings then so can we.

    ” if it has no name , it does not exist” , that’s a rule of logic and society . unless they are going to give embryos human names from now on !!!

    IF you punch a pregnant woman in the stomach and she loses her baby should you faces a trail over the death of the unborn child ? I think you can make a close argument here for the embryos. Obviously this is not the same thing but it still a serious issue.

    I just saw the al news and they interviewed the Alabama governor and asked how this is going to affect parents wanting to start a family and she didn’t know what to say. The government should stay out of medical issues! I live in Alabama you know what the government needs to fix? The road!

    We are in our 50s with grown kids. I think we are about to make some embryos and store them in Alabama…we need the tax deductions. How much to mix up 40 baby batters? 😅

    So does this mean we can claim a fetus as a dependent on our taxes? If not, we should sue the government.
