With the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade in June of this year, laws regarding reproductive health will now be handled by the states since this is no longer a federal issue. We are now beginning to see how each state is interpreting and enacting these new laws.
According to most experts in the industry, it does not appear that any of the [contemplated] laws are intended to limit IVF. For example, most recently Indiana passed new legislation that limits abortion in the state, however, it was made clear in the language that the new law does not apply to IVF or IVF-related services.
As this situation continues to play out, we will, of course, continue to work closely with our colleagues at ASRM and RESOLVE to monitor any state activities or laws that would impact IVF or IVF-related services in any way. [characterize embryos in a way that would limit IVF, freezing, storage and related fertility services.]
We will also work very closely with our physicians, clinical experts and legal team to modify any practices to ensure legal compliance, as legal compliance and patient rights are key principles for Ovation.
These times do create uncertainty. However, for now, and until we learn more, we are staying the course of providing outstanding reproductive services to our patients. As we learn more, we will keep you informed of any changes and share updates as they become available.
Finally, we have had several questions regarding the location of our long-term storage facility. It is in Henderson, Nevada.
