Home Alabama Supreme Court Ruling

IVI RMA and Boston IVF are here to serve the many families across the country who hold a deeply cherished desire to have children.

We are deeply saddened by the recent Alabama Supreme Court decision and what it means for those depending on IVF to build their families. We have already seen the impact it is having on families in the middle of the IVF process and how it is leading to less access to care.

Physicians need the opportunity to serve and support their patients in this very sensitive process. While we do not operate in Alabama, we will continue to support families’ and doctors’ ability to pursue and provide fertility treatment.

Additionally, we are pleased to announce that Boston IVF reproductive endocrinologist Pietro Bortoletto, MD will join Massachusetts State Congresswoman Lori Trahan as her guest at the upcoming State of the Union on March 7, 2024, in Washington, DC.  

Trahan Announces Leading IVF Doctor as State of the Union Guest

March 4, 2024



LOWELL, MA – Today, House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC) Co-Chair Lori Trahan (MA-03) announced that Dr. Pietro Bortoletto will be joining her as her guest at the State of the Union. Dr. Pietro Bortoletto is a Reproductive Endocrinologist and the Director of Reproductive Surgery at Boston IVF, the practice where Congresswoman Trahan underwent IVF treatment for five years.

“In the wake of the GOP’s latest attack on our reproductive freedoms, I spoke up about how IVF gave my husband and me our two beautiful daughters, Grace and Caroline. The outpouring of love and support has reminded me just how salient this fight is to protect our reproductive freedoms. Of course, my story and my daughters were only possible because of Boston IVF, the practice that helped me through five long years of IVF treatment,” said Congresswoman Trahan. “I couldn’t be more honored to welcome Dr. Bortoletto, who works every day to help couples have the family they dream of, as my guest for President Biden’s State of the Union address. We look forward to hearing from the President about his commitment to working with Democrats in Congress to protect women’s access to reproductive care.”

“I am thankful to Rep. Trahan for the invitation to join her at the State of the Union to raise the importance of federal protection for IVF. Infertility affects 1 in every 8 couples in the US. Access to IVF treatment is essential medical treatment to help these couples build their families,” said Dr. Bortoletto. “Beyond infertility, access to IVF is crucial for patients with cancer who want to preserve future fertility and those attempting to side-step genetic disease in their offspring. Which state you live in should not determine your ability to access fertility treatment.”

Dr. Bortoletto was born in São Paulo, Brazil and raised in Miami, Florida by Brazilian & Italian parents. He attended the University of Miami for college and then moved to Chicago, Illinois, to attend the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Dr. Pietro Bortoletto is a Reproductive Endocrinologist and Director of Reproductive Surgery at Boston IVF. He specializes in all aspects of infertility care with a special interest in diminished ovarian reserve, recurrent pregnancy loss and implantation failure, Müllerian anomalies, fibroids, endometriosis, and Asherman’s syndrome.

Trahan gave birth to both of her daughters, Grace and Caroline, through IVF. She is a proud cosponsor of the Access to Family Building Act, which would codify the right to IVF nationwide. 


We look forward to speaking with you, and will be in touch as soon as possible!
