Alabama has passed legislation shielding doctors from potential legal liabilities raised by a court ruling that equated frozen embryos to children.

The state signed into law a measure aimed at protecting IVF after the Alabama Supreme Court decided frozen embryos should be considered “extrauterine children” and therefore potentially subject to wrongful death lawsuits if an egg was destroyed.
