Update On Arizona Infertility Legislation

As a follow-up to previous posts regarding infertility patients’ rights, here is the official update, from the RESOLVE site, regarding the Arizona legislation I have written about previously (see related links at the end of this post).


Arizona Residents, Updated February 18, 2010

On Wednesday, February 17, the Senate and House Committees in Arizona heard testimony on bills that would dramatically affect egg donor programs in Arizona and medical research. The bills passed both Committees and will now move to the Rules Committee, before they move to a full vote in the Arizona House and Senate. RESOLVE is following the developments very closely and will have updates in the next few days. Please continue to express your opposition to these bills.

It is not too late to express your opposition to these bills.

If you are an Arizona resident or know someone who is, please take a moment to click the yellow badge (below). It will route you to RESOLVE’s page regarding this legislation. From there, you can access links to write to Arizona legislators. Here is the badge:

If you have a blog, please consider posting the badge above and linking it to this site, which posts updates as they come in.

If you are a Facebook or Twitter user (the latter of which I no longer am, as per this link HERE), please share the informative RESOLVE link above with others. There has been surprisingly little buzz in the blogosphere about this legislation. These bills have been moving quickly and I suspect that many are unaware that such landmark legislation is being processed in Arizona as we speak.

I only wish I knew a way to get the word out to more people… faster.
