Hadassah Leads the Call for Change During Infertility Awareness Week

The stigma of infertility leaves families across the country suffering in silence. One in eight couples in America reports having difficulty getting and staying pregnant. The problem is even higher in the Jewish American community, with as many as one in six couples affected by infertility.

Hadassah is committed to destigmatizing infertility and making access to help easier.

During National Infertility Awareness Week 2022, Hadassah is leading the call for change, mobilizing twenty Jewish organizations to send a letter asking members of Congress to support a bipartisan Hadassah-backed resolution, sponsored by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Rep. Dan Crenshaw, calling for increased access to infertility-related services and funding for research to improve treatments.

Will you take action by asking your representative to support this important resolution today?

Hadassah medical professionals have been at the vanguard of infertility treatments for decades and pioneered the use of preimplantation genetic testing. The Hadassah Medical Organization’s Fertility Treatment Clinic is one of Israel’s leading fertility centers.
