    "Under the law, the non-consenting party is not considered a parent, nor are they required to pay child support.

    But it doesn’t acknowledge the emotional impact of knowing that a child born from a couple’s embryo exists."

    I think the law will stand up to court challenges at the state and federal level.

    I'd prefer to see a law that requires couples to make a written statement about what to do with fertilized embryos in the event of a divorce/split, rather than this. With this law, a couple could agree that any frozen embryos should be destroyed in the event they couple splits, then one could change their mind after the split and break the agreement at will. :dunno:
