The Sanctity of Human Life Act, which Ryan co-sponsored, should it ever pass, would ensure that life begins at fertilization. This Bill would dash the hopes of thousands of infertile couple by criminalizing the destruction of day-old embryos.
The WHO predicts that by 2050, the developing world will add 35 million people annually. Yet, at the same time in those same overpopulated regions, about one in three couples are infertile. Public health officials call it the Fertility Paradox.
The fetuses created by IVF will ideally become healthy people. But the IVF industry needs federal oversight to ensure that the children produced have the maximum chance of growing up to be healthy adults.
