Amy O’Donnell, communications director for the anti-abortion group Texas Alliance for Life, said the group supports continued access to IVF. However, she said, the organization believes embryos created through IVF should not be discarded; it supports options like embryo adoption, wherein individuals donate embryos they don’t plan to use.

“We do believe that there is a way to protect life from the moment of an embryo’s fertilization while still allowing families the opportunity to bring forth life through the IVF process,” O’Donnell said. “It is something that we trust the Legislature is going to be looking into.”
