“The alarming decision by the Alabama Supreme Court holding that frozen embryos are persons under the state’s wrongful-death law is shocking and yet predictable. It comes amidst a widespread assault on individuals and families and their ability to make the most personal of decisions regarding their health and futures. From bans on abortion and transgender health care to censorship aimed at erasing LGBTQ people from view, far-right activists and government officials are seeking to impose their narrow views on all of American society. NCLR applauds the Biden Administration for convening yesterday’s roundtable and its broader efforts to ensure access to essential health care for our communities.” – Julianna Gonen NCLR Federal Policy Director
