Poll shows majority of Americans support the continued legality of IVF for women

According to a recent poll, the vast majority of Americans support the legalization of in vitro fertilization treatment (IVF).

According to a recent poll conducted by CBS News/YouGov, a staggering 86 percent of Americans are in favor of maintaining the legality of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) for women. In contrast, only 14 percent of respondents expressed their belief that IVF should not be legal. This overwhelming majority demonstrates the widespread support for IVF as a viable option for those seeking to start a family.

The survey was conducted from Wednesday to Friday, just under two weeks after the Alabama Supreme Court’s ruling that classified frozen embryos and fertilized eggs as children under state law. This means that they are now subject to legislation concerning the wrongful death of a minor. The court’s decision stated that Alabama’s Wrongful Death of a Minor Act will now be applicable to all unborn children, irrespective of their location.

The recent decision, although focused on Alabama, has garnered significant attention nationwide, shedding light on the topic of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and potentially sparking a broader debate on reproductive rights across the United States. It’s important to note that the ruling itself does not ban IVF, but experts in the field of fertility have expressed concerns that the new legal standards could result in increased costs and limited accessibility to the procedure.

The Democrats wasted no time in criticizing the ruling, while Republicans found themselves in a difficult situation as they tried to explain their stance on abortion and IVF to their constituents.

A few weeks ago, a coalition of Senate Democrats made it clear that they stand firmly behind IVF treatment. They are now making efforts to push for a vote on a bill that aims to safeguard and preserve access to this vital fertility treatment.

Alabama’s legislature recently approved bills that grant civil and criminal immunity to IVF service providers. This immunity protects them from any prosecution or legal action related to the services they provide. Governor Kay Ivey has indicated her intention to sign these bills into law.

According to a recent CBS News/YouGov poll, a majority of Americans are in disagreement with the Alabama ruling. The survey revealed that approximately 66 percent of respondents expressed their disagreement, with 45 percent strongly opposing it and 21 percent somewhat opposing it.

According to the poll, there was a difference in familiarity and opinions regarding the Alabama ruling among respondents based on their political affiliation. The results showed that approximately 65 percent of Democrats were familiar with the ruling, while about 42 percent of independents and 34 percent of Republicans claimed the same level of familiarity.

A majority of Democrats, around 82 percent, were in opposition to the ruling, whereas a smaller percentage of independents and Republicans, specifically 67 percent and 49 percent respectively, disagreed with it.

According to a recent CBS News/YouGov survey, 2,159 U.S. adult residents were interviewed from Wednesday to Friday. The survey has a margin of error of 2.8 percentage points.
