IVF Treatments Protected From La. Abortion Trigger Laws


Dr. Jay Huber reassures IVF treatments are not affected by Louisiana trigger laws


WWL Radio interviewed Dr. Jay Huber, FINO’s current medical director on Louisiana’s abortion trigger laws. The laws are currently facing a court challenge. But many people are wondering what those laws mean for families considering in vitro fertilization (IVF).

While there is a lot of confusion and speculation, Dr. Huber says those considering IVF treatments don’t have to worry.

“The overturning of Roe v. Wade has not changed the way that we approach our patients and our business,” Huber said. “This is not a change for us in Louisiana. We are very protective of our embryos.”

Dr. Huber added that fertility clinics, including FINO, do everything possible to keep the embryos in their care viable.
