Calling All Arizonans, We Need Your Help!

There are two bills that are pending in the Arizona state legislature, SB 1306 and SB 1307. These bills have the potential to interfere significantly with medical treatment for patients with infertility. So we need your help!!

As introduced, SB 1306 would have outlawed all compensation to egg donors which would have effectively end egg donation in Arizona. The second bill, SB 1307, also still contains provisions that threaten infertility patients, mainly through vague terms that make it unclear what treatments doctors can safely perform and which ones could land them in jail. Most flagrantly, this bill could forbid embryo cryopreservation (freezing) – which would dramatically alter how reproductive medicine is practiced and would cause harm and hardship to patients.

On behalf of the more than 100,000 women and men in Arizona who are contending with infertility, RESOLVE opposes SB 1306 and SB 1307 because they will make infertility treatment less available and less effective. So please I urge you to turn up the volume to let your representatives know that you oppose these anti-family bills.

RESOLVE has made it SUPER easy to contact your representatives by providing a pre written letter, simply click here, fill in your info, click next to select your representatives (or just select all of them), check email/fax/or print (I selected email because that the easiest), then send. Its that easy!! These bills if passed will have a great impact on the people still struggling so lets not let this happen!

Please and Thank You : )
