NASHVILLE, Tennessee, Feb 4 (LSN) ” Last week the American Bar Association (ABA) considered voting on a policy regarding frozen embryos. The proposal would have urged judges in divorce cases, where frozen, preborn children were at stake, to favor the spouse who wanted to take the child to term and assume parental rights and responsibilities. The parent who favored death or indefinite storage would not be given preference. A similar policy was withdrawn from ABA consideration last year due to the controversy around the issue. Although the current proposal had the support of the 346,000 lawyer organization’s board of governors, the ABA decided Monday to postpone a vote on the proposed policy. About 10,000 frozen embryos are created in the US each year, and custody cases have raised awareness of the issue nationwide in recent years.
