Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Illinois Disputed Embryos Case
The Supreme Court of the United States refused to take up a case involving disputed embryos that were created for fertility preservation purposes.
The case, Szafranski v. Dunston, has garnered national attention. It arose after Karla Dunston, a doctor, was diagnosed in 2009 with lymphoma. Because her course of treatment presented the risk of infertility, she and her boyfriend, Jacob Szafranski, froze embryos. A few months later, they broke up. Unfortunately, Ms. Dunston was, in fact, infertile after her cancer treatment. Her three frozen embryos, therefore, represent her only chance at having biological children.
