Please Support Legislation to Help Build Families

Dear [Decision Maker],

Family. It is one of the most valued social institutions for Americans. During these trying times, family becomes even more important, as stronger families create a stronger society. However, for the one in eight American couples who experience infertility, this can compromise their desire to start a family.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the American Medical Association (AMA), the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), infertility is a disease. Due to lack of insurance coverage and access to reproductive care for this disease, those who are unable to become pregnant or sustain a pregnancy find it difficult to build a family they so long to start.

Today, we ask your support for pro-family public policies that will help American women and men suffering from infertility build their families and reach their life dreams.

The Access to Infertility Treatment and Care Act S 1461 and HR 2803, will provide those who receive their healthcare through government-sponsored health plans, including TRICARE, the VA, the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program and others, to have coverage for infertility services. It also provides access to vital fertility preservation services for those, like cancer patients, who are at risk of infertility due to medical treatments such as chemotherapy and surgery.

The Women Veterans and Families Health Services Act, S 319 and HR 955, will permanently allow Veterans with a service-connected injury causing infertility to access IVF medical treatments, which the VA currently bans. Make #IVF4Vets permanent! This bill will also allow for cryopreservation and storage of gametes for active duty military, fertility counseling, improved coordination between the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs, and reproductive, adoption, and childcare assistance for veterans.

Every Child Deserves a Family Act HR 3114 and S 1791 will increase the number of foster and adoptive homes by banning discrimination against foster and adoptive parents, families of origin, and foster youth based on sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, and religion.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Awareness Month, House Resolution 146 and Senate Resolution 317, designates September as PCOS Awareness Month and recognizes the need for more education and research on PCOS. PCOS is a life-long health condition that affects 5 to 10 million women and girls in the U.S. and is a leading cause of infertility.

The Adoption Tax Credit Refundability Act (ATC), S.1652 and H.R. 2965, advances the important public goal of encouraging adoptions, especially children with special needs. That is why Congress has supported the bipartisan ATC since 1997. The adoption tax credit needs to be made refundable so low-to moderate-income families can afford to adopt a child.

I stand with advocates from RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association and ASRM and ask for your support of these pro-family public policies. For more information contact RESOLVE at Thank you for supporting efforts that can help millions of Americans build their families.
