For some women having a child is the single most important issue they face as adults. Each year thousands of women rely on the medical technology, including In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), which provides them with the opportunity to have a child. As a result of IVF there are over six hundred thousand embryos being cryopreserved in the United States. Where the embryos were created using the gametes of the woman’s partner or spouse, and that relationship disrupts, the legal obstacles that prevent her from using the embryos to have a child may be her biggest challenge yet, even when the embryos represent the woman’s only opportunity to have a genetically related child.
