On Friday, former President Donald Trump reacted to the Alabama Supreme Court's ruling that has led to clinics in Alabama suspending in vitro fertilization (IVF) programs after the Court found IVF embryos were protected under the Wrongful Death of a Minor Act.

Trump stated he would “strongly support the availability of IVF” in a post on his social media platform Truth Social. He also called on the Alabama Legislature to act to preserve access to IVF treatment.

Under my leadership, the Republican Party will always support the creation of strong, thriving, healthy American families. We want to make it easier for mothers and fathers to have babies, not harder! That includes supporting the availability of fertility treatments like IVF in every State in America. Like the OVERWHELMING MAJORITY of Americans, including the VAST MAJORITY of Republicans, Conservatives, Christians, and Pro-Life Americans, I strongly support the availability of IVF for couples who are trying to have a precious baby. Today, I am calling on the Alabama Legislature to act quickly to find an immediate solution to preserve the availability of IVF in Alabama. The Republican Party should always be on the side of the Miracle of Life - and the side of Mothers, Fathers, and their Beautiful Babies. IVF is an important part of that, and our Great Republican Party will always be with you, in your quest, for the ULTIMATE JOY IN LIFE!

The former president echoed his Truth Social remarks during a rally in Rock Hill, SC on Friday afternoon.
