Latest Assault on Reproductive Rights - Frozen Embryos Are People

Only One of Many New and Novel Tactics By Right-To-Life Advocates
WASHINGTON - Feb. 20, 2024 - PRLog -- In a decision widely expected to have profound impacts on reproductive rights, the Supreme Court of Alabama has ruled that even embryos which are frozen are nevertheless people entitled to be protected against even accidental destruction, much less from any deliberate attempt to harm them.

Although the most immediate impact of this decision is to impact the hundreds of thousands of women who depend on in vitro fertilization each year to protect their right to procreate at a time of their choosing, it could metastasize into another major tactic of those opposed to abortion, argues public interest law professor John Banzhaf, the author of a major legal analysis of the new steps the right-to-live movement is making.
How Fetal Personhood and Fetal Estate Lawsuits Threaten Abortion Rights (

He pointed pointed out that, with all this attention focused on loss of a constitutional right to an abortion, and access to pills used for medical abortions, the media, the public, and even abortion rights advocates are largely ignoring other major legal attacks which could have an even more devastating impact on reproductive rights.
With so much effort and attention now being focused on blocking proposed legislation which would severely restrict abortions and on litigation involving the FDA, it's not surprising that abortion rights advocates have largely not yet focused on three other new emerging legal threats to reproductive freedom and the rights of women, says Banzhaf.

For this reason, Banzhaf has authored a detailed analysis of these new legal threats:
(1) fetal personhood laws and bills,
(2) lawsuits brought on behalf of the estates of fetuses which were aborted, and
(3) lawsuits purporting to be on behalf of a living fetus against the still-pregnant woman   @profbanzhaf
