If you truly care about the sanctity of families, and you’re genuinely actually honestly interested in protecting IVF, then you need to show it by not blocking this bill on the floor tomorrow.

It’s that simple, Sen.

Tammy Duckworth, via statement.

Duckworth, an Iraq War veteran, and her husband turned to IVF after not being able to conceive for 10 years.

They currently have two children.

I have five embryos that were created (using IVF); three that were deemed to be nonviable, would not survive, Sen.

While many Republicans have objected to Alabama's ruling, they are expected to block Duckworth's bill despite indicating otherwise, Reuters reports.

Duckworth said that if Republicans end up objecting to the bill, she'd "love" to have those individuals named on the record.

I expect them to, if they live up to the words that they’re saying, to not block it.

But we’ll see tomorrow when the rubber hits the road, Sen.
